Thanks for posting, Megan! I'm in the same position as you, unable to put more than $350 per month toward my largest debt. But the other day I got back my credit balance from my gas comp. (I'm on budgeted billing.) and I put $75 to put toward my Discover card. (will BT balance to MBNA next month) and saved $50 for the e-fund.

Yes, I get a little envious hearing that others are able to put $1500 toward one card every month, but this is the best I can do given my salary and my other obligations.

Like you, I take a great deal of pleasure from those small payments, particularly the extra $10 and $20 that comes along every so often. I myself am looking forward to the $80 I'll get this month from attending a workshop last month. Going straight to the HELOC. So I say kudos to you. Every little bit counts.
