A bit of a pick-me-up.

October 30th, 2008 at 10:44 pm

Things have been rough lately... very rough. Lots of stuff breaking, necessary things that we had no choice but to do, unexpected medical costs, blah, blah, blah.

I got the dreaded WaMu statement in the mail today. When I started this blog we owed roughly $10,000 on it. The interest rate at that point was 9% or so. Then one day they jacked up the interest (for no reason whatsoever... never made a late payment on that card even once, and I at that point had never paid any bill late) to 19.99%, which they wouldn't change under any circumstances..) Anyway. on the statement today we owe a little bit over $5,000 : ) Still a crapload of money, but HALF of what it used to be : ) : ) : )

    You should be very proud of getting that cc down to $5K. That is awesome considering your circumstances. Keep up the good job and keep working your plan. It will pay off...really!

    nomorecredit, that's a big difference, nice job! Actually, I had a question for you but your profile doesn't allow Private Messages or emails. Can you please PM me when you get a chance?

    I'm not sure how to do that because it won't let me click on your name, but I'll change my profile to accept pm's : ) Didn't realize it was set like that or I would have changed it long ago!

    okay, for the life of me I cannot figure out where the e-mail or the pm setting is... is it here or is it in the forum?

    Bank of America did the same thing awhile back. They jacked up all their credit cards to like 29.99%.

    But great job. Don't lose your focus and make sure the holidays are in your budget. Don't want that 5k to ballloon.

    The PM settings are through the forums so log into:
