Hey all,

Payday's tomorrow so I did the bills.....first, the numbers.

Here are the numbers:

Card 5/1/02 Balance 10/8/04 Balance
Discover 1337 0
MBNA 7875 1070 (0% til 4/05)
Citi 7736 6094 (4.9 for life)
Bank Loan 8535 0
Chase 0 0
----------------------------------------------------------------
Total $25483 $7164 $18319 gone!

This only about $120 less than the last time I posted four weeks ago, which is why I said my snowball melted, since this is what gets paid off when I only pay minimums. Oh well, at least I didn't ADD any debt, right?

There have been a few things that contributed to only paying minimums this month, but the biggest one is that I have been TOO LAZY about cooking/eating at home. That didn't eat up all my snowball but it is a problem. The other things I've dealt with are paying a few medical and dental co-pays. I had several bills come in the last couple fo weeks for some lab work, fillings at the dentist, and so forth. Fortunately I will get some of that money back because I can file for reimbursement for my flex spending account.

I hope everyone else is doing well! Good luck to everyone on paying off their stuff!
