People's Bank ... paid in full.
Sears card ... paid in full.
First National Bank ... paid in full.
Fleet ... paid in full.

Thanks to our unsecured loan, we have successfully wiped our four high interest (25%+) credit cards! The payments were made in August, but it took a statement or two for everything to catch up and for me to pay the lingering finance charges.

More happy news ... I work part-time for an event caterer and I spoke to the owner this morning. He's sending me $50 each for two weddings that I sent his way, plus the $50 for working this past Saturday night!

Even more happy news ... I just did our bills for the first half of the month. I always sit down on payday and write checks and/or schedule online payments for everything that is due before the next paycheck. I did that this time and I have more leftover than last month, which means we've been spending wisely!

Also, we have $625 in our e-fund, up from a big fat ZERO in July.

Thanks for all of your help!
