I’ve been posting a lot less these days, and there are a couple of reasons for this:
1) I’m working on a new blog! I’m looking forward to sharing the new blog with the readers of the Debt Breakup. My new blog won’t be anonymous 😉 so I guess you can find out a bit more about me!
2) I’m close to the end of my journey to debt freedom and thing are just rolling along – ie, not a lot of exciting updates to report. I’ve reached my ‘savings ceiling’ in that I have tweaked my budget time and time again – there isn’t much more I can squeeze out of it to pay towards debt or to save. But I’m very pleased with settling into a budgetary rhythm!
A cool thing I did do recently though was sell my stuff at a trash and treasure market 🙂 I’ve recently become a minimalist – something I cover off on my new blog – and letting go of many of my possessions has been the first step on my minimalist journey. I made $205.00 profit from the stall – which I was very pleased with considering most items were priced at $2 – $5!
So, my 60th week of debt repayments. 60 weeks.
For pretty much the entire last 60 weeks I have made financial decisions based on minimising my debt as a priority. I’ve said no to things, I’ve worn the same wardrobe, I’ve mostly made purchases of needs, not wants. I’ve cut and reduced costs in every part of my life I could. Time and time again I have put debt repayment before my whims, wants and generally fun stuff.
With the light at the end of the tunnel getting brighter and brighter, I can honestly say it has all been worth it so far.
My update for Week 60:
Credit card 1 – $0.00
Credit card 2 – $0.00
Personal loan: $ 2,542.95 (previous update $3,142.15)
$650.00 (increased by $200.00)
Starting debt: $14,774.12
Debt paid to date: $12,231.17
Have a great weekend everyone! My next update will be under $2000!!
