Pay Day (ep. 8)

Whew, it’s getting hot out there! Grab a cold one, let’s look at the digits:

Total applied to LOC:        $750

Current LOC Balance:       $9,204.44

Progress on LOC to date:  $5,283

Car Loan:                               $15,662.64 -it’ll sit that way until September or until I reach the end of the LOC debt and start to attack the car debt…whatever comes first! (oh man, I gotta push for the latter scenario!). There’s only 5 pay days until September (bummer – why am I already counting to the end of summer?). So it’ll be a focused effort to make the milestone.

It’s a 3-pay cheque month next month (yahoo!), so I’m already planning to see more significant movement of the debt needle. Also, we’ll be on vacation for a portion of the month which, weirdly, means spending less.

With a floating cottage and no commute to work, we live a simple fun life on our summer holidays. Think: swimming in the lake, bbq’s on the beach, drinks on the back of the boat looking into the sunset. It’s a great life, and pretty easy to do without breaking the bank.

As summer becomes a welcome reality, and schedules get more loosey-goosey than ever, I promise to keep the updates coming. They may be small, like this one, but will keep me accountable to myself. If I slip up and buy too much ice cream, it’ll show in the numbers – both financially and on the scale!

So here’s to rolling down the windows, turning up the tunes, sandy feet, sun-kissed shoulders and enjoying life for what it is without breaking the bank to do it.

What does your summer hold for you?
