Don’t you just hate it when a dollar amount comes in at 99 cents??? If only I had paid a penny more! lol That’s ok, I’ll take it.
I planned for it to be a great month, and it was okay, I guess. What??? Yes, yes, yes I’m kidding! December kicked ass! My December net worth stands at $174,857.67. So close to $175k! Which is also so close to $200k! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
As I mentioned in my December debt reduction post, I was very blessed with a lovely gift in December, one I’ve received for a few years now and that I will continue to receive for a few more. Even though I can’t say that I earned the gift, I can say that I earned the benefits of it because I chose to do the right thing and put it toward my debt reduction plan. Would I have liked to get new windows for my home or take a tropical vacation? Hell, yes. But I will be able to do those things for myself in a few years when my Parent Plus debt is gone.If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else ~Dave Ramsey Click To Tweet
