I haven't thrown in the towel even though I want to.

July 11th, 2006 at 01:54 pm

I haven't quit yet. I'm still here. Still figuring it out. Still kind of bummin' that it's not perfect yet, that I'm not in the black yet, but it's getting easier.

I know that each step I take is for a larger goal, one that will reap rewards not just for my sanity but for my whole financial well-being.

Next paycheck I am paying off a credit card and saying goodbye. I don't need it. I'm snowballing my debt and hopefully in a few months I'll be able to post a success story.

It feels good to be in control. Today I made coffee and breakfast at home instead of spending $6-8 to have the people at Starbucks do it for me.

Baby steps, folks. Baby steps.

    That's really great because that's the only way to do it. One payment at a time, one debt at a time, one frugal habit at a time, it all adds up.

    What's neat is the feeling you get when you turn the corner, and can finally see the result of all the work you've done. Suddenly, there really is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Keep slogging, and keep posting.

    Avoiding Starbucks is a BIG step! If you've been a regular, you will save a lot when you become a non-regular!

    Wow, that is great to be paying off a credit card. You deserve a nice pat on the back! Good luck and be encouraged!
