I just cancelled Dishnetwork!! I've been wanting to make that call a for awhile but I've been dragging my feet. Feb 2 is our last day of programming. We'll see how we do with just OTA and I may pick up a new Roku.

I tried to cancel our lawn service but they talked me into staying with a $3.00 cut in price and they are only coming out 5 times a year instead of 7. We'll see how that works out for us. I don't like weeds in our yard and dh isn't so great with weed control and keeping our lawn green without it.

I also changed my internet a few weeks ago and cut my landline down to the basic plan without long distance. I'm waiting for my first bill to see how that pans out.

I've been talking about doing these changes for awhile and it feels good to finally get them taken care of.

Mailed medical bill payment today so it will get there Monday - got a 10% discount for paying within the first 30 days! It was less than $200, but still good to be paid. Of course, got a different doctor bill of $55 in the mail today, but that is no biggie - will pay it next week too.

Also mailed another car payment (designated principle only!) today. I'll be scheduling my "big" bills on Sunday, when I can see my paystub.

Just wanted to post that I was able to make an extra $150 payment to our cc today. This is because DH and I have stuck to the budget we created at the beginning of the year! It's a small step, but it's a step in the right direction for us.

I paid off one of my credit cards today!!

I've been paying little amounts of money to it here and there, and not really checking in on the balance, and this morning I was looking at my online banking and realized I only had $61 left on it. Paid it immediately and now I finally have a credit card with no debt on it, woot woot!! Now I only have the other credit cards, and my store card, and my student loans to go... oh well, it's a start!!

Congrats on paying one off That is extra money you can put towards another one to pay it off faster!

I cannot wait to get mine paid off! I keep going over my budget, because I want my final payment to be done by May31st! It's going to be a struggle but I am determined!

Good job! I love those times when you make more than usual and you can envision the money going towards something! I do consulting, and my boss called me at 7pm tonight saying she had a casefile I could work on over the weekend and get paid on Monday, and I SO didn't want to get up off the couch and go pick it up and take on more work over the weekend. But I made myself do it, and now I'm so glad because its 3am, but I'm halfway done and when I drop it off on Monday, it'll almost pay my rent. I'm so glad we have each other to keep the motivation going!!

I know exactly how you feel not wanting to work! Everyone where I am is out with the flu, and today was supposed to be my one day off this week, but I figured I would sludge on in so I could get an extra day of overtime pay to sink into my bills! I figure it will only get them paid off faster!!!
