quick note!

Just paid another $2400 towards my 0% cc debt! Brings the balance down to $2490.

Im very hopeful that I will actually be able to pay this off by the end of this month instead of the middle of next month.

Woohoo :)

2009 Goals

Now that the last few details have been worked out, Im ready to post my 2009 Goals!

1) Finish paying off 0% interest cc by mid February.

2) Stay out of cc debt!!

3) Finish funding EF to $5k by mid February.

4) Contribute maximum to 401k (sadly, no match!)

5) Contribute maximum to get IRA match.

6) Travel out of the country using savings (not EF! savings, heh).

For now, Ive decided against trying to pay off the car early. I will likely get rid of it when the extended warranty expires in 1.5 years.

I have an additional goal, but it didnt seem specific enough to list. Im imagining I would like to have somewhere between 10-30k (on top of my EF) available in cash like equivalents. I may add that as lucky number seven sometime during the first quarter.

2009 rocks so far!

Before the end of last year, a source of some additional/weekend income offered me a 'salary' and set # of hours for $X. I thought the offer was way, way, way low and countered with a figure almost 40% higher.

Got the call today that he was happy to accept the higher offer (which btw, I still thought was a great deal for him). Sweet!

Yay for prospering :)

Prospering already!

I received a 'free' check for $1000 today. Woo! I had forgotten that some portion of my scrilla from last start up being acquired was held in escrow until the deal was totally done.

While I was (ok, *am*) tempted to purchase that Tory Burch Reagan Zip Tote (at 20% off!), I'm pretty sure Im goin to use all to pay down a debt.
