This post is a few days late. On Friday 8/31 I received part of my yearly bonus. We get it paid out twice a year. It was enough to pay off the kid's school registration and one of my credit cards completely and have a little left over. That was the plan until Friday. I changed my mind and decided to pay off several small bills instead.
Before Friday Debt:
Store Credit Card #1 $196.95
Store Credit Card #2 $122.91
Appliance Store Card $210.00
School Registration All 3 Kids $483.00 - 8th,5th & 1st. 8th Grade was $290 by itself.
Dinner Out for Daughter's Birthday. $80.00
This ate up all of my bonus but I figured two credit cards are paid off and appliance store card is down quite a bit. The Appliance Store card still has a balance of $166 and that will be paid off by the end of the month. I will now start applying all these payments to the Credit Card. After the Credit Card is paid off I have two hospital bills to pay off from my son's surgery earlier in the year.
School Registration definitely takes a chunk and I wish it wasn't so expensive. Our middle school/High school registration fees are ridiculous.
Debt Still to Pay:
Credit Card: Orchard Bank: $1085.00
Dr Bill $1300.00
Therapy Bill $1400.00
Capitol One Card:$ 1100.00
We still have a long way to go but I am making a dent in it.
