Celebrating 2 Years!

Yep! Two years since I started this blog to document my journey out of the mounds of debt I found myself in back in 2009.

There are STILL mounds of debt, but it's fun and motivating to look back and see the progress that has been made! And on those days it feels like one step forward, two steps back.... I need to look back to re-assure myself that things are better than they were.

Over the next few days, I'll be doing a detail review of the debt that was approaching $400,000 when I made the first blog post.

Here's where it stood:
Primary Mortgage - $254,984.88
Rental Mortgage - 27,723.90
HELOC - 92,711.42
Chase Card #1 - 6,698.00
Money Market Loan - 4,711.50
Chase Card #2 - 3,620.62
Bank VISA - 3,575.78
Capital One - 1,129.26
Kroger credit card - 958.23
TOTAL $396,113.59

UGLY! And let's face it, it's still not pretty. The living expenses that come with raising two kids on our income just don't allow for gazelle intensity. But the situation has improved. And I thank each and every one of you for stopping by and offering encouragement and advice. It's going to be a long haul, and I am grateful to all of you for sticking with me and helping me wade through until we can all declare debt freedom!!!
