Where have the past ten days gone'  I meant to update this blog on more than one occasion but time somehow got away from me. I can’t say that I’ve been doing anything particularly exciting. Just doing the usual, working and paying down debt!   I took care of the preemie for 20 hours last [...] The post Ten days and saving the best for last appeared first on A ...

It was a busy week.   Well, at least for me it was!  I managed to work four days in the office (cha-ching!) and (cha-ching) today did a five-hour shift taking care of the preemie.  Being in debt, I never turn down the hours that become available.  I’ve already been asked to cover two full [...] The post Money Talks appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

“You are so lucky to have someone who is willing to take the time and help you. My husband is on board with getting the debt paid off, but he doesn’t want anything to do with it – really doesn’t want any details at all so it is hard for me to sometimes figure things [...] The post When it comes to getting out of debt, is it possible to ...

You know what truly inspires me as Hubs and I travel the road to debt freedom'  It is reading about the successes of others also paying off debt!  While I’m always thrilled to see their progress, I want to keep up.  Forget the Joneses.  These days I’m doing my best to keep up with the [...] The post Forget the Joneses. I’m keeping up with the Debt Crushers! appeared ...

Yikes!  After playing the “what if” game probably more times than I should, I decided to go for it and let our checking account get a smidge lower than my usual comfort level.  I went ahead and made one final payment for the month.  I need to remind myself that all funds are accounted for, [...] The post Update Time! appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

So, today my car is stuck.  Yep.  Thanks to 5 inches of wet slippery snow, it will not budge from where I ran off the driveway. Part of our driveway is very steep, and that is where I ran into trouble.  Being a AAA member, in all reality, getting stuck should be merely an inconvenience.

This morning I’ve been playing around with a lot of “what ifs.”  For those of you also digging your way out of debt, I’m sure you know the game.  It starts with “what if our paycheck is X” and moves on to “what if we pay X amount to this or that bill” and goes [...] The post What if' appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...

Our final payment cleared and the account is now officially closed!   Today was the day to make the call and say good riddance to American Express.  They served their intended purpose (to reduce interest), but they were a major thorn in my side.  If you recall, after taking advantage of their zero percent interest [...] The post Good riddance American Express! appeared first on A Dime at a Time. ...
