Incredible Joy

April 26th, 2008 at 06:26 am

Who would have ever known that controlling my money instead of it controlling me could be so much fun. AND we don't feel like we're doing without either. (guess that attests to how much money we were wasting.

We have been able in just one month to pay an extra $550 on our focus loan and put $400 in savings. And we have not gone without, nor have we gotten any extra money this month. In fact we budgeted $500 (and spent) for recreation and intertainment and still accomplished the above. I feel like I'm dancing on air most the time.

    You were able to find an extra $950! If you can do that month after month, your loans and other goals are going to be met in no time. Congratulations on your new found awareness of your own spending/saving!

    Yes I am amazed too and my dh's overtime working season has not even began. His paychecks will increase a couple hundred soon. And for now, until our firt of three loans is paid off, we are putting any extra on our focus loan so I see it gone by the end of summer.
