Long time no update

December 5th, 2013 at 04:42 pm

I fell off the wagon again.

Here is where things stand now:

Student Loan #1 - $2669.01
Student Loan #2 - $32,498.04
Credit Card #1 - $9,292.18
Credit Card #2 - $1,398
IRS Bill - $7,605.98 (I consolidated 2012 and 2011 together)
State Tax Bill - $0
Total (3/26/13) - $53,463.21

There has been some reduction, but overall a fail because I began eating out regularly and lost my laser focus on debt paydown. I had a very rough year job wise and being hit with another IRS bill didn't make things any easy. The good news is I have not accumulated any new debt. The bad news is...well look above and weep.

    I'm going to still say 'kudos' for not adding to your debt! Keep trying to reduce the eating out expenses.

    In spite of more IRS debt you've kept the lid on. How can we help your regain your 'laser focus' on debt reduction? Eating out has potential to double your food costs but lessen the nutrition value since they are using so much chemically laden 'convenience' products. Your easiest weapon is a crockpot/slow cooker available for a pittance at most Goodwill or Thrift shops. We can offer long lists of easily prepared and portable meal ideas.
