I can only Go Up
My credit scores range from 506-561. I am working on paying off all the things that I can. For instance, there are 4 outstanding accounts that need to be paid. I have a thought, I have money that I don't want to spend, but let build, borrow off of that money and pay it off. Continue to save and put the money where it is most needed.
There has been some excessive spending here and there, but if I continue to cook, that will help me save some cash. I purchased a ledger, this should help me keep up with all of my finances. I can make this work.
Order for taking care of these bills, I sent in $200 today, the final payment will be mailed by the end of this month. The total cost is $464.
Pay $200 everything month until they are all paid off. I did pay for my braces, no more payments on that. I paid for 2 months of storage. Not paying that bill after the end of this month. I have to do right by my finances. Plus, the property management is working out. The place has been rented out. All extra monies, put in a good place. I did sign up to do a outside yard sell. This will give me a chance to sell the candles, but the weather really looks bad.
I must not do wrong by the money, I keep saying that. I don't want to end up with nothing to show for what I had. I know I waste much, but I can't continue to do that. Overall, I feel good about where I am going and what is going on.
Things I've gotten rid of
Directv 140 a month
Braces paid in full 100 a month
Things I need to get rid of
Anyway that I can cut corners I will try, the only reason I haven't gotten rid of the home line is that it's connected to my security system.
Plus, I am going to take some time off from school and Sallie Mae has been calling and calling. Majority of my debt is student loans. When looking at my credit report, I really don't have bad debt. I do have a credit card with a $300 limit. Paying off the above debts would help my score much. My goal is to have at least a 650 credit score by the end of the year. I do believe that can be done if I keep putting money where it should be. As long as I owe, the money I make is not mine. In my mind, when I get ready to spend put that money toward a debt.
Paying off debt is very important to me and it may get obsessive. Have to have something to worry over.
Bills that I pay
The money that is left over should go to debt. Did I mention I am going on a trip this summer. I have to get this paid for soon.
I haven't been the best financial planner, I know, but I can and will handle this issue.
