Overdue Update

May 13th, 2007 at 03:39 pm

I haven't been keeping my blog up to date lately. Spring has come and hubby and I have been spending time outside cleaning out the yard, planting a few vegetables. I think we got started a little late, but we'll see. I will post a few pics.

On the financial front. NTD (Nothing To Declare) Smile Bills are getting paid. Although I think I finally got through to DH. He understands now that we have to get our credit cards balances paid. Don't ask me how that happened! When I did a big sigh on Friday when he told me he needed to go to the store and was going to have to charge it on the credit card, he ended up sitting down with me. Asked me where and how much we owed. What are regular bills were, and so on. We have a breakthrough!! Woohoo

The water bill came in this week: $124.09. More than last quarter.

The car is getting paid at a good rate. Balance is $5,135.21. 9 more months and we should be done. When this is over with, next step is to tackle the credit cards.

We had to take $1,000 out of our savings to pay for taxes! Damn... That hurt. But I'd rather pay taxes then get money back. I just wish we had planed that a little better and adjusted our deductions better so we didn't have to pay as much. Anyway, I'm trying to replace it. We're still far from the $18k we need as an EF and I'm not comfortable with that.

I closed my BofA checking account and transfered the money to the MBNA card. That helped a bit.

The balance I transfered from Chase to Citi (at 0%) is also getting paid. This one needs $150/month in order to get paid without paying any interests. We're on track there. Nothing gets charged to that card. I don't even know where it is! (ok, yes, I know where it is, but it's hidden somewhere and I never think about it)
