A terrible month for our net gain. Frown Not only did we take on a lot more debt, but I had to pay out the rest of my animal money for hay, and I had to dip into my buffer to pay for even more animal food. The reason debt did not go down was because my side income check is late. I'm guessing they will probably wait and add it to next month's check at this point. I put in a lot of hours this month thankfully. So here is to hoping November is better...

Retirement gains. Debt pay down. Car insurance was due and pulled from escrow/EF. Also had to pay about $1,000 in medical bills from the HSA. October month is going to hurt because we are taking on a significant amount of more debt, and I will be buying the last portion of hay.

July Check In

Steady progress on CC, EF, and retirement. A large chunk was from an unexpected/late contribution from husband's old employer. HSA was contributed to, but was overthrown by baby medical expenses.

June Check In

October 4th, 2019 at 07:09 am

Debts
Mortgage -$113,811 (-$151.09)
0% CC -$6,843 (-$580)

Animal Fund +$623 (-$819)
Truck Fund +$1,615 (+$105)
HSA +$780 (+$240)

Overall: +$2,520.09

Markets recovered this month and everything moved up slowly but surely except for the animal fund which was wiped pretty low after the purchase of hay and a new goat.

Credit card progress is slowing down as expected since my hours are significantly slower.

May Check In

Truck Fund +$1,510 (+$250)

Made bigger progress this month but it was offset in the market drop of our retirement funds.

I thought it would take until August for our net worth to hit zero but I am at $-600 right now and will be positive as soon as I get my web design check this week!!

April Check In
