Money Money Money

I can’t believe it’s almost February!  Where did January go?!  Maybe the busyness from the holidays followed by being busy catching up at work has made this month feel so short.  Either way, I’ve stuck to my New Year’s Resolutions, and I’ve been chipping away at my student loans, staying on budget every month, and done some cheap/free activities with Avery this month. Here’s three (money money money) financial updates this month…

First, a little recap on my student loan status this month…

14 Month Progress

  • Debt Nov 2012: $41,868.53
  • Debt Jan 2013: $29,149.64
  • Debt Paid Off:  $12,718.89

Although $ is tight, I put every extra penny towards an additional loan payment this month.  It wasn’t as much as December, but it helped… I’m almost under $29K !!!

January Review

  • Starting Balance: $29,894.98
  • End Balance: $29,149.64
  • Paid Towards Loans: $736.98
  • Interest Paid: $110.69
  • Principle Paid: $847.67

Capture

I’m hoping I can pay off the next loan on my list with the help of my tax return… but who knows what that will look like after selling a house?  Either way, it looks like there will be a few hours of overtime available this coming month (I only got 2 last month :() so I will have more extra $ to put towards these loans…

Loan Pay Off Plan

  • SM 1-08 @ 6.55% (February ’13): $0
  • SM 1-07 @ 6.55% (Nov’13): $688
  • SM 1-05 @ 6.55% (Nov’14): $3020
  • SM 1-06 @ 6.55% (Mar ’14): $3315.55<– # is going down!!!
  • SM 1-02 @ 6.55% (Sept ’14): $6432.2
  • SM 1-01 @ 6.55% (2015): $7222.47
  • VSAC C @ 4.77% (2015): $2087.54
  • VSAC A @ 3.17% (2015): $4659.28
  • VSAC B @ 3.17% (2015): $2323.85
  • SM 1-03 @ 2.1% (2015): $1350.48
  • SM 1-04 @ 2.1% (2015): $1332.37

As I write all these numbers out, I think back to before I started paying these loans off… I can’t imagine how much I would still have left if I kept paying minimums and didn’t sit down and put all the numbers down in front of me, every month.  As scary as it is, seeing how much debt I have, having control of it, and a plan to abolish it, is empowering.  I know there is an end in sight, maybe not my 30th birthday, but I can reach for that and even if I pay them off a little after that date, it’ll be SOOO much better than paying these for 10-15 more years!  I know how much $ it would free up a month, which would mean more $ to save for Avery’s college, or save towards a house for us, so many possibilities when my expenses will go down by $800-$1000 a month!

And that brings me to this month’s budget…

It’s hard to admit, but we were very close to being in the red this month.  I’m a little disappointed, but I knew it was going to be tight this month.  My income was lower than expected because I was only offered 2 hours of overtime – although I am swamped at work, I can only do certain kinds of work on overtime, and there just wasn’t much available this month. We were in the green though (I earned more than I spent)… so that’s a good thing!

Capture

I knew going into this new apartment and having laid out all my expenses that I needed to work so much overtime every month to stay afloat.  I know it’s risky, but affording a two-bedroom apartment near my office is near impossible.  I was good about cutting costs this month though, so we squeaked by.  I have high hopes for next month.  I know there is some overtime available already, so I’m jumping on that on Saturday.  I’ll be able to make some more $ next month and use it towards student loans.

On my monthly expense excel sheet this month, I didn’t spend much on activities/entertainment.  That’s because Avery and I did some cheap/free activities like going to Chuck-E-Cheese – I only paid for tokens, we didn’t eat there, and it was over an hour of fun!  When we visited Vermont, we went to a high school basketball game (that Avery LOVED!) and that was free for him and only $3 for me.

Because it’s been so cold outside, we’ve been keeping ourselves entertained inside too.. Play Doh has become a daily activity, especially with the new ‘hair salon’ contraption MiMi got Avery.

Overall, this month wasn’t financially great, but we are keeping our heads above water.  Avery and I are happy and healthy with a roof over our head and food on the table.  I’m thankful for that.

  21. I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.

  24. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  25. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Excellent blog!

  26. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  29. I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  101. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  102. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

  103. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  107. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  108. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.

  215. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  218. Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!

  219. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?

  220. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Fantastic blog!

  232. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  233. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
