Not enough hours in the day is how I’ve been feeling lately.  I’ve been working a lot more hours than usual.  No doubt this is a good thing while digging out of debt!   Sadly, many of these hours came about quite unexpectedly.  About two weeks ago I received a call from the son of [...] The post More hours than time appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

Yikes.  I’m a tad late with this update!  I was on an organization binge, and hey, you got to run with it when the spirit moves you! As for our progress thus far this month, while not stellar, we did pay down more debt~and that is always a good thing!  We have such an irregular [...] The post Update Time 5-17-2018 appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

A big THANK YOU for the all encouraging words and suggestions as I battled some weariness.  I am again in good spirits and remain in attack mode against our debt.  This journey is definitely not one for the weak.  Giving up, however, is not an option.  I will see this through to the end!   [...] The post Thank you! appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

What’s happening in the world of A Dime at a Time?   I am feeling a bit weary right now.  No, it isn’t family related.  Things in that area are pretty much status quo. The state of my current mood is more related to our debt.  I get like this from time to time.  I’m [...] The post Money Talks 5-8-18 appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

The one thing I’ve never gotten too personal about here on A Dime at a Time is the topic of family dynamics.  Let me tell you, compared with dealing with family issues, paying off debt sure feels like a walk in the park!  In spite of how some people like to portray themselves (yes, we [...] The post Family Dynamics~A Big Ugh! appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

April was another good month for us.  There were several reasons for this.  The way our paychecks fell, Hubs working extra hours, and very few additional bills that came due.  You know how it goes, you take those months and run with them!  Now for the numbers: 1-1-2017     $55,749.69 1-1-2018     $46,408.39 [...] The post Update Time 5-1-18 appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

Hi everyone.  So sorry for the lack of posts.  Life has been a bit crazy the past week.  Between putting in as many hours as possible at work, Hubs being away for an extended time and now some issues with my elderly father, I’ve been a bit stressed.  I should be back tomorrow with an [...] The post Sorry for the lack of posts appeared first on A Dime at ...

It’s back to work for me tomorrow.  The 80+-year-old secretary asked me to cover for her.  Working for her on Fridays has become a bit of a norm, and I’m thankful for the hours.  I think she enjoys having a three day weekend and she has more than enough vacation time on the books to [...] The post Back to Work appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

I survived the snowstorm but am still digging my way out.  Adding to the 20+ inches that fell was a lot of blowing and drifting.  Our snowblower had a mishap in that I hit a downed branch causing it to lock up.  Unfortunately, I hadn’t gotten very far with the clearing when this happened.   [...] The post Digging out is hard work! appeared first on A Dime at a ...

Hey Everyone.  Good news-I still have power and internet.  With this current storm, it’s hard to say how long this will last.  Figured I’d better write a financial update while I still have the chance! April has been a fantastic month for our war on our debt.  Hubs has been putting in a crazy amount [...] The post Update Time 4-15-18 appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...
