Feels nice to make it past the 1 year mark. This month we're down $587 which leaves:
A lot of awesome things happened finance-wise for us this month.
I got another contract extension for work until my due date which takes off a huge burden - especially over the holidays.
We finished paying off one of our loans entirely (woohoo!).
DH has been working a bit of overtime which is always nice.
We paid for almost 2/3rds of our Disney Trip!
We put a serious dent in our Christmas shopping.
After posting our updated monthly budget, Martina asked about our $400 allocation for groceries so I decided to make an honest effort to track my grocery expenditures more closely over the past month. I will have a post on that later this coming week!
Ideally I'd love to be sitting below $50K by January 1st to start the year off in the 40K's but I have my doubts that we'll be able to knock off nearly $1000 in December of all months with our vacation, Christmas, and some unpaid time off for DH over the holidays and a few days this week (he is going in for surgery again tomorrow). Maybe a Christmas miracle?
