17. Back in the Rat Race! Plus…

Just like that, I’m working again. It’s been about a week on the job and my excitement level is on 10! The last few months have been interesting in that I’ve had the opportunity to visit family across the country a few times and spend lots of quality time with my family here at home. But, after almost 4 months, I am happy to be working again.

As a recap, when I was laid off, My monthly expenses/savings amounted to $8,672. Also we had $17,283 in debt remaining.

During the period when I was not working, I didn’t place a focus on paying down debt, even with my severance. With gainful employment, and severance continuing into 2020, we have the AMAZING opportunity to lump sum PAY OFF THE REST OF THIS DANG DEBT! So that’s what we’re doing

Boom! FREEDOM! I feel great! Here’s our picture now!

Debt Free

 

Now with the credit card payments gone, we’ve also reduced our monthly expenses

Expenses 9.29

 

Ok…so now we need to figure out what’s next? Maybe buy a house? That would be nice
