Paid Off More Debt

September 1st, 2015 at 03:56 pm

It's payday so I paid off more debt that has been sitting on credit cards (no interest is being charged). I feel better than it is starting to dwindle down. Smile

Specifically paid:
$704.38 American Express (Orlando trip expenses)
$3.20 American Express (movie rental)
$360.44 Target Red Card (dorm & school expenses)
$166.58 Discover (online school expenses)

We still have just over $2,184.79 on credit cards. Considering it was over $3K when my husband and I were discussing things a few nights ago we have made some progress. The goal will be to keep spending as low as possible to try to use some extra income toward expenses.

At the same time we are working on debt, we are discussing flying to see family and college daughter at Thanksgiving. I have a Companion Pass earned with Southwest that lets my youngest daughter fly for free with me through the end of the year. This means we only need to pay for two tickets. One scenario has our flights costing $911. Which when you divide by three people flying is pretty good!! I really dislike the idea of flying during the holiday simply because it is so busy, but that is when most of us have time off work and school.

    Enjoying the holiday with DD and extended family [your parents?] for Thanksgiving which is totally about family, friends and delicious foods sounds wonderful. I'd watch Southwest price on a couple of travel sites for a few days in hopes of snagging a bit better price but $ 991. sounds good for high season travel. Maybe practice 'square breathing' exercises to cope with craziness at airports.

    Daughter #1 will be very happy to see you--I think that's a "must-do."

    Yep, I don't like flying during the holidays either. But when it's the only time you can get away (or others have off as well) then you've gotta do what you gotta do. (Ir sounds as though we'll miss each other again, since I'll be in CA that week!)

    sorry, totally off topic... about college scams that landed in my e-mail this AM. I found it alarming, I hope you've seen it
