March 2011 :: Report

Debt Reduction

Our goals for March were:

Credit Card Debt    ::  $ 18,889.20
Taxes Owed              ::  $          00.00
Car Loan                     ::  $ 15,432.19
Personal Loans       ::  $          00.00

Total Debt*              ::  $ 34,321.39

And here is where we were after 3.31.2011:

Credit Card Debt    ::  $ 18,889.20
Taxes Owed              ::  $          00.00
Car Loan                     ::  $ 15,432.19
Personal Loans       ::  $          00.00

Total Debt*              ::  $ 34,321.39

*does not include school loans

Look at that! We hit our target! And, we are getting closer and closer to our goal!

Budget

I’m sad to report that I still don’t have a great handle on how I should be tracking the budget with Quicken (some things aren’t recording correctly, which is very frustrating), so I’m going to take some more time before I start to report on this section.

Savings

Savings Goals for March:

Regular Savings  :: $      35
Family Leave       :: $    520
Emergency           :: $    730

Total Savings      :: $ 1,285

Where we landed at the end of March:

Regular Savings  :: $     86
Family Leave       :: $  520
Emergency           :: $ 1,102

Total Savings      :: $ 1,708

We got a good chunk into our Emergency Savings (yay!), so we’ll be able to use that instead of credit cards when we do have emergencies!
