Finally, payday was today. The last few days seemed to take a really long time. I was hoping to get roughly $600 in travel reimbursement from work, but it seems to be held up in paperwork. So, I’ll start calling on that tomorrow.
I was able to send a total of $1116.51 to the credit cards. Now, evil Card #3 has a zero balance. Yay! If you’ve been paying close attention to the debt tab, you’ll see that my total credit card debt only dropped about $30.00. That’s because of my lack of travel reimbursement and charges for my upcoming trip to San Francisco. However, my stimulus check and the travel check will total $1200 to throw at my debt. That will more than pay off Card #1. By the end of May, I should be down to $5,000 on my final, low-interest card. Hopefully, I’ll ramp up my snowflaking streams too. This waiting around for money is a real drag. I can’t wait until June 1. That should be a milestone day!
If you’re looking for a good read, go to the Carnival of Money Stories today. My post, “It’s Only Money,” was an editor’s pick. Hooray! I ended up with four editor’s picks in April — that was really fun. Speaking of carnivals, don’t forget to read the Carnival of Snowflaking right here tomorrow morning!
