Default weekly payments and a celebration!

Whoo hoo! We did 12 mos SAC for Josh's new bed. I knew that I didn't want to use "extra money" to pay for it, but pay it off as a part of our regular payments. So I set up weekly payments online, instead of monthly, so it would get paid off quickly! I paid it off today, in 10 weeks!!

I always *said* I'd put extra money on our credit card payment, and on our HELoan, but knew that I wouldn't put on as much as I should. So for the HEL and the credit card, I setup weekly payments too. It seems like less money coming out every week, and if money gets tight I just put off the payment for a couple days (but never delete it).

For our credit card, I make a bigger "chunk" of a payment too, just once a month, along with the weekly payments. Now, I can take the "bed money" and put it on the CC weekly payment. I'm not missing the money now (well yes I am but you know what I mean) so might as well roll it over to the CC! I can't wait to get that paid off, and then we'll be putting over $200 a week on our HEL.

Feels so good to get that off your chest. Even smaller debts feel so good to be gone.
