So I’m quickly rewriting this shortly before I am on my way to work. My current total credit card debt is $6,359. August was a really good/bad month consisting of me buying new clothes having birthday celebrations, going out to brunch with friends, getting my car repaired, going out to dinner, paying for my Amazon prime subscription renewal, as well as other miscellaneous things.
Roth IRA: $1,028
Total retirement is $29,457
The above number is actually about 12% above where I was at the end of April 2017. I’m contributing a total of about $2200 per month toward credit card debt, which to me is still a very large sum of money. The worst-case scenario is I will stop my retirement contributions at least as the notion of paying credit card interest comes closer to reality.
As my overall debt has decreased, my FICO score has increased as illustrated by then chart below. My low point for the 2017 was 765 and today I’m at a 779, trending upward. 🙂
Sometimes life sucks but you have to pick yourself up dust yourself off and get back to work. That’s exactly what I’m about to do now alongside my intermittent fasting. I’m not going to be bitter about my original blog post not saving on the WordPress platform.
