June was another challenging month in our household.
- In the second half of the year, I always travel for work, which presents new sinking fund challenges.
- I diverted about $425 towards being away from home for 11 days out of this month
- My father has to have another round of surgery, so we are going to have some money to spend at the hospital for the long waiting hours
- Fixing my car took extra money as well, but that was completely worth it!
We are ahead of schedule paying off the last big medical bill.
I project it to be done by the end of July!
James and I have decided that we are going to put my entire paycheck on debt. Typically I would split it in half and use the rest for sinking funds, help with a bill, or going out to eat. We’re putting an end to that and sticking to sinking funds and debt. We are both determined to try our hardest to get out of debt THIS YEAR.
Here’s what we started out with: $50,896.71
Here’s what we’ve paid off since 1/4/16: $39,255.03
Here’s the medical debt: $4,859.62 | $194 (paid) + $3,923.74 (hospital) + $718.83 (specialist -paid) + $23.26 (another specialist – paid)
Here’s what we’ve got left to go: $16,698.52 | $3,000.74 – James Medical Bills | $13, 697.78 -James Car Loan
