I wanted to give a quick post highlighting some of the financial goals I accomplished in November:
- I paid off $1,227 worth of debt on my credit card. $1,000 is my “normal” payment, which means I snowballed $227 IN ADDITION to my normal payment this month. This includes my $14/week that I’m “stealing” from myself, as well as left over cash in my bills account and “free money” account at the ends of the month. With the $117 that I put on my student loan, I payed $1,344 towards debt this month – or 53% of my after tax take home salary.
- I earned $732 in extra income this month. My goal for the month was $600, so I’m stoked! I am also tutoring tonight, but I’ll count this towards December’s total since I won’t get as many tutoring opportunities next month. I get this extra income from teaching a class at the local community college, tutoring online at Tutor.com, tutoring in real life, doing surveys, and clicking on ads at YouData.com.
- I increased my Networth +11.62%. My networth went from -$13,360 on October 31st, to -$11,807 as of today! An increase of $1,553.
