I suddenly had the urge today to blog about my money. Why? Maybe because this morning it hit me that my retirement is coming along nicely but my everyday finances are still in shits and shambles depending on the day. LOL
Retirement: My retirement funds are coming along very nicely. I contribute to my pension and an IRA with vanguard. Combined there is about $35,000.
Credit card debt: This is a blog post by itself about emotions, cycles, life etc
Regular Savings: I am still saving what little cash I keep on hand in CDs. Why? This works for me. I use 3 month CDs from my credit union.
My other savings account is where I stash my travel dollars. Now you may ask why am I traveling and still have debt to pay off? Well because I can and my travels are not being put on a credit card.
Student loan: SallieMae was finally paid off in 2012 I think. Don't remember exactly. I now have one student loan remaining that has around $6,700 remaining. This will be my focus this year. It would make more sense mathematically if I paid off the credit card. However, I am not interested in the math. I just want the student loan gone forever and ever amen!!!!
