Standing in my truth

May 18th, 2018 at 08:23 am

Well, I have been putting it off because I didn't want to know the truth. I knew the last 3 weeks had been costly and today I know just how costly it was. At the end of the month I will be $1020.64 in the red. I know. Its flabbergasting. I can sit here and list all the excuses why it got that way, but that's it...they are just excuses. I am going to scrounge up $21.00 immediately so I am below 1K. I have a side job today that will pay $50. I have an order that I will make $140 on next Friday. And I am just going to start selling everything I can. $1. $5. Whatever I can make. Because I can't pay off debt until I get out of this hole. And I know we will have medical bills soon so I have to get a grip.

I haven't used my debit card since we agreed to not buy anything. I still have gas. We have food in our pantry and we have enough dog food for at least a week.

Counting down the days until this Bad loan is done. That will free up $244 a month. If I can get in the black, that $244 will make me feel rich.

    Hang in there! You got hit by a lot of stuff, so the stumble is completely understandable. I'm glad you're still determined. You'll get out of this hole eventually!

    Proud of you for facing the truth! Everything is up for consideration when you are in the red. It will be really nice to have that $244.

    We have all had things like this happen. Don't beat yourself up about it. Just back on the horse and ride. Make a menu plan based on whatever you have in your cupboards and fridge. Can you consolidate any of your credit cards or refinance your car or house to save on interest? Do you have a garden or some place where you could grow some of your own food? I save probably between $5 and $10 a week that way a lone. Even a small pot on a porch can allow you to grow something lettuce, radishes, or green onions.

    Don't give up! Just keep plugging away at paying of your debt.
