One more debt paid off!

Yes, one more debt paid off. Another small one of course, but still, it is another one paid off.

So, why do I feel depressed about all this? I should be feeling good about all this. I think it is the fact that I do still have a huge amount of debts...and my credit score is low...

Today, I paid one debt. Ok, it was a small one. Still, I am glad and proud of myself. No more phone calls or emails from this creditor!

It is so motivating!!!

My goal is not only to be debt free - but I am working very hard right now to pay my bills on time - respect my budget and avoid late fees. Easier said than done BUT working very hard on it!

Another week, another day.

I agreed to watch my boss dog for the week. Well, I did not really want to but did not know how to say no. Surprisingly, he gave me $100 to watch the dog which help me buy groceries. (I had no idea how I was going to pay for groceries this week). So, I was soooo happy!!!

On another note, my employer cut my hours from 40 to 30...this will have a HUGE negative impact on my budget.

One of the thing I like to do is participate in sweepstakes. Especially online. In the past six months, I have won:

- a $400 gift certificate to BODHI bags
- gloss and mascara
- body lotion
- a mattress cover
- a free oil change at MIDAS.

However, I have hit a "dry spell" in the last two months...Hoping this is going to change!!!
