I can hardly believe it's August already and we've finally started having some nice weather here in the Pacific Northwest!! Not much to report from here, just plugging along and working hard to get the debt paid down. I've finally put the credit card away completely and am living on cash only...I'm finding this is working well for me, I don't spend with cash near as easily as I do with plastic and I don't cringe each month when the bill comes now. Of course I'd still like to see it going down quicker, but at least it's not going up anymore. I just got a promotion at work and will be working a lot more and a lot harder, but I'm excited and ready for the challenge. I'll also be getting in quite a bit of overtime, so that will really help take care of the debt. And I know it won't be long before I'm going to need a new(er) car, so I'm trying to get the current debt paid off before I take on new debt. I've been keeping a low profile socially lately and taking advantage of the pool at my condo and checking out a ton of books at the library. I cut my cable off and bought a Roku player, I don't watch much TV anyway, so this is a great option for me and the added savings will go toward debt reduction as well. Other than that, not too much going on these days, just enjoying the lazy, hazy days of summer, hope you all are too!
