Reimbursement

June 12th, 2018 at 09:02 am

Got my cell phone reimbursement from work today. They don't reimburse much but it's something. Adding $38 to my Discover Loan.

Also got another mystery shopping payment. Another $20 to Discover.

I am busy trying to find a reasonable personal loan to pay off my credit cards. I haven't found anything lower than what Discover is offering so I might just go with them. And then cut up everything plastic!

I am getting antsy because it takes so long for these small amounts of extra cash to come in - I feel like I am fighting against the interest on my credit cards and every measly bit isn't helping much. Plus it's so hard when things always seem to come up at the last minute. I need to do some better planning.

My goals for this week are:
1) contact another garbage company to see if I can get a lower rate
2) contact the gas and electric company to get a lower supply charge
3) cancel my land line

Father's Day, the last day of school, my daughter's high school graduation, and my anniversary are all coming up in the next 2 weeks - it's a busy time and I am afraid it will be an expensive time.

Ugh, maybe updating my sidebar will make me feel better.

    It does seem like the trickle of reimbursements, savings, etc. take so long compared to how interested is calculated. But as you know, every little bit helps to get rid of it.

    I totally get the struggling against the interest rate - hopefully you'll be able to refinance it soon and make some headway, but it seems like you're chipping away! Positive steps in the right direction.

    I just try to remind myself that the debt was 10+ years in the making. I'm not about to be rid of it overnight. If small amounts over time added up to what it is today, then small amounts paid back over time will eventually knock it out. Keep at it!

    Can you come up with low-cost ways to celebrate some of those things? Quality time with the fathers in your life, a bbq for daughter's graduation with a practical gift like a finance book or paying for a semester's college parking in the fall or spring, handmade cards or notes for teacher thank yous, and an anniversary celebration in with a homemade fancier meal and a bottle of wine are just some ideas.
