Well, I tried.

I had the plan to pay off two credit cards this month but after paying off one and a little on the other I realized that if I don't take a break I'm gonna go postal. I have decided to pay off seventy dollars of firestone this month so that way I'll bring it down to 100$ which I can pay off next month. The good part about this is, every extra payment I make on this card will count toward the next month. Its awesome! I can pay ten dollars for three weeks and that's no payments for three months. I wish my other cards were like that.

I would feel kinda guilty about going back on my plan but I don't. I'm so buntout and fed up with everything that, if I don't put some money aside just for me to treat myself with, I'll probably snap. Sucks when you don't earn a lot. I hope I like my summer case because I'm counting on it to get me out of the majority of this debt and keep me sane all in one go.

Hope ya'lls month is going a bit better than mine. This month is Memphis's rainy month so lots of wind, one day its cold, next its hot, and tornadoes should be popping up soon. Fun stuff.

    Going postal can be expensive. Sounds like backing off a hair and treating yourself a little can put you in a better frame of mind to hop on the plan again. Its all about the fine touch - figuring out when to save aggressively, do neither, or spend a bit.

    Its always rainy in Seattle. Seems to be colder than usual also.

    Its important to find the balance that works for you. And to just educate, educate educate yourself, as you are on this board, so that money knowledge becomes second hand and there are no longer option(s), just the option you know you must take.
