|I'm crying on the inside.
Apparently kicking myself in the shins every time I whip out my credit card hasn't helped much. I had to finish paying up on the plantation shutters and bought a new receiver to top off the home theater in the great room. That should be it on the big expenses for now, although I do have the media center to think about (ugh). I'm still spending smaller amounts on little things here and there in order to finish filling the nooks and crannies of the house, not to mention the usual food staples a few times a month.
If I keep my sanity in check I should be down to under $500 in credit card debt by July. That's my goal anyway.
Still waiting on those tax refund checks... and I've got church gigs every Sunday for May, so that will reduce the bleeding somewhat.
If my net worth drops under $200,000 then I will go into "thrift mode" and not spend on anything except food, no matter how badly I may "need" something. That's the plan anyway. We'll see how May plays out.|
