Cash spent 1/21-1/27 on all categories, if I had categories : $285

E-fund: $780 cash.

There is a little progress across the board, but I'm not putting too fine of a point on comparing the numbers. It's still early in the game and I'm not real sure on where everything was in the billing cycle, what payments had been applied, and such. General progress though.

This weeks goals:

Figure out what Thypeace was alluding to.

Hold the line on spending. Sounds vague, but we are tracking with some intensity. One day this will have a number.

Pay those minimums on #2-4 with my Feb 1 check.

Pay cash for Subaru repair and re-list for sale. I think it is/will be covered by an uptick in the hustle income! This one could turn into next weeks goal, depending on how long the shop takes. I won't leave thousands on the table and sell it as-is. I wouldn't do that even if I wasn't 50G in the hole. Instead, I'll exercise a little patience and common sense and plan to pay off #2 with the proceeds. AJ485, at that point I'll call card #3 and try to lower that rate as you suggested. Bobtx (?) pointed out that they may raise the minimum payment if a lower rate is negotiated. After card #2 is retired I'll be glad to get a lower rate AND pay a higher minimum because that will be the target card at that point.

Thanks all!
