August 2009 :: Goals

Our goal for August is to pay $2,000 toward our debt. Of course, there is interest ($473) , so the net will be $1,527 – now that we’ve managed to pay more than $10,000 off since the end of February, we’re going to set our sights on the $15,000 mark. I think we can do it by the beginning of November!!!

So our totals at the end of August should be:

Credit Card Debt  ::  $40,806.70
Taxes Owed          ::   $  3,509.00
Personal Loans    ::
$  5,000.00

Total Debt*            ::  $49,315.71

*does not include school loans

We’re inching our way to the $50,000 mark!!

And we can’t forget the Savings Goals – at the end of August, we aim to have:

Regular Savings  :: $    240
Family Leave       :: $    325
Emergency           ::
$    535

Total Savings       :: $ 1,100

According to MSN Money, our debt-free date is :: August 20, 2012!!!

But I think we can get it all paid off by April 2012, which is 4 months earlier, so we have August as our goal and April as our “push” goal (can I get a nod from all of the retail management surviors).
