Don’t worry, we’re still making progress. But with the hot months, day camps, boats in the water and working to make the most of it all, my July expenses were DOUBLE March…and April, and May!
I get that we do more ‘low cost’ stuff during the winter. In our house, in this part of the world, we hibernate, work on projects on the house, train for races coming in better weather, entertain at home and read more during the winter. And my spending reflects that.
Summer? It’s like we drop all common sense and, because our summer season is a short 10 weeks or so, just figure ‘eh, go for it!!’. After looking at July, we went for it A LOT.
We’ve already coined this winter as the ‘winter of discontent’, also known as the winter of ‘NO’. Till then, we’ll make hay while the sun shines and the weather is hot, hot, hot.
The numbers, although showing progress, indicate that I’m a little behind plan. Meaning final pay off may not be till October, not September as hoped. C’est la vie, I’ve got to little a little too, right?!!
Total applied to LOC: $1245
Current LOC Balance: $5999.23 -see what I did there? Just couldn’t resist pushing the budget a bit to get it below $6k 🙂
Progress on LOC to date: $8,5778 – man, that feels chunky. That’s a needle move!
Car Loan: $15,662.64 -ugh, I want this to MOVE. I’ll update the balance on the day I make the last payment on the LOC.
