This Thanksgiving will likely be tough. It will be my first holiday without the girls. Speaking objectively, I’m going to be fine. I’ll celebrate our Thanksgiving together a day early or a day late. I’ve been invited to a friends for a Thanksgiving meal on the actual day so I’ll have some distraction and some […] The post The Thanksgiving Table appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

This post is more of a “life” post than a strictly financial one. If you’re not into the “life” stuff, feel free to skip it. I finished my second Ragnar race last week! If you’re not familiar, Ragnar is a relay-style race where participants run for 24+ hours. We ran at McDowell Mountain, which is […] The post Finished My Second Ragnar appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

Wouldn’t it be great to live debt-free and not have to worry about making monthly payments to several credit cards? While it may seem impossible when you’re buried underneath debt, you can use the snowball method to start making headway on that debt. The debt snowball method works by starting with the smallest debt and […] The post You Can Become Debt-Free by Using the Snowball Method for Repayment appeared first ...

I think I’ve just experienced my greatest “Single Woman” win thus far! (Side note: I capitalize “Single Woman” as a half-joke. One of my good grad school buddies just went through a tough divorce and bought her first house as a single woman. She sent a picture of a portion of the house contract. The […] The post Another Single Woman Win! appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

Last week, I said goodbye to Gymnast. He decided a month or so ago that he wanted to try living with his dad. I was heartbroken and shocked. But at 13 years old and after a tumultuous few years, I did not blame him. His dad, my ex-husband came to town for a week and […] The post Great Sorrow & Big Change for Me appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

I decided to try something a little different this month. Rather than posting a weekly spending plan, I am going to try a monthly one. Since we are continuing with our No Spend Month for a couple of weeks, and going to be at my parents for Thanksgiving, you will notice there is not a […] The post Hope’s Anticipated Spending – November appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

We made it through the month! And it flew by. And more importantly, I truly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the quieter life, being home more, cooking more. I’ve enjoyed not looking at my bank account every day and worrying about upcoming bills. I’ve enjoyed working for the sake of working and not counting every single […] The post No Spend Month Extended appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

Happy Halloween! Here’s a (dark) pic of the girls from over the weekend at a trunk-or-treat: The kids will be sure to have a fun day at school today – its dress-up day so they get to wear their costumes. We bought them from Costco for I think $16 each. Pretty decent considering how many […] The post Happy Halloween! appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...

Lately, I’ve really been trying plan double-duty meals. These are meals that I cook once and then repurpose into a different meal later in the week. It saves me time on cooking and is a little bit “fancier” than just having plain leftovers because the leftovers are repurposed in a new way. One example is […] The post Double-Duty Meals appeared first on Blogging Away Debt. ...
