PCC Todd.0 or BUST! My adventure in climbing out of debt! 10/13 T-Minus 29 hours!
The Plan: Be on Podcast Cruise 2.0 (December 12th-16th)
How did this trip come about: Jason and I had such a fantastic time on PCC 1.0 that we want to experience it all over again! When we were on PCC 1.0 we rebooked on the ship for PCC 2.0 so we would get a discount....the best pricing is too be had when you rebook on board.
How will it happen: I am in quite a bit of debt that I need to get out of before I go on any vacation. My dad helped me out a great deal with some financial stuff, and he told me he wants me to pay off all my debt before I book another trip(period). If he finds out that I am going on a vacation before my debt is paid off, he is going to make me repay all of money he lent to help with my debt.
Jason's brother is getting married in Arizona this November and I am staying home to save the money. My former self would have had us all fly out there, rent a car, get a hotel room and possibly extend the trip a week and a half to go over to Disneyland and spend sometime in San Diego. Instead it is looking like this, Jason is flying out and his brother or dad will be picking him up and he will be staying on his brother's couch. We also are forfeiting DAP (disapalloza) so we will be able to go on PCC 2.0, this was very hard forfeiting DAP, as we got a free dining pin code for the time of DAP and alot of the friends we made on PCC 1.0 are going.
So.....will we be able to get out of debt to go on PCC 2.0?!?
I have to pay off 3 credit cards, I am starting with the highest interest rate cards first. I don't make the most money in the world, but I can be happy I have a job in this economy.
PCC 2.0, is making me disciplined so I can get out of debt and pay cash for the remaining balance on our cruise. I cannot wait to be on that ship again and this time with 600 of my closest friends!
How will it not happen: If I do not get my 3 cards paid off in full, and the cruise paid off in cash I will have to cancel this cruise.
Let's see what happens!
