Paid off Home Depot CC Today!

January 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

Today I finally paid off this last CC! I paid the balance of $6,560.

I was able to use extra sources of income such as surveys, Ebay/Amazon sales, found $, mystery shopping, refund checks, and Saturday job income solely to come up with $4,067.97 since September 2008. I even surprised myself that I was able to save all of that aside from my full-time job income to apply to this CC.

Anyway, I had to supplement $2,492.03 from my regular savings to come up with the rest of the money to pay this thing off! Not too bad I guess, but now I have to replenish those funds.

I think I am just going to keep a separate savings account for extra income funds like I have been using to save for this CC debt. I will post the amounts and update my sidebar, just like I have been since Sept. That way I will have an extra cushion in addition to my regular savings that is funded with my full-time job income, in case I need it.

Have a great evening everyone!

    Good job and good plan, too. When I was saving Christmas money, I used a similar method to find the funds. It worked so well. It's funny when you have a defined goal that additional funds just seem to appear!

    That is totaly AWESOME!
    What is your Saturday job? Sounds like I need to get one of those.

    thriftorama--It is in health care...the same position I have at my full-time job. It pays much better, but there is a bit more of a commute involved. It is in a nearby state with a larger city.
