$20,702.44

At the end of the month, it’s not quite fully the whole thousand that I wanted to be down.  But it’s down, and I’ll take that.  And, I think that on March 1, 2010, I will be under 20K.  So that’s something.

Struggling a wee bit with wanting to use my Virgin card to earn airline miles and planning to always directly pay the card back, in addition to making card payments.  I guess maybe I must just give up on the airline miles for now.

But I feel like January was pretty good for the spending, overall.  Until next time…

$21,429.06

Appalled
Scared
Disgusted
Resolved

Some of the many things I feel about that number up there.  It’s my total credit card debt at the end of 2009.  And yes, I am appalled, scared, disgusted and resolved to get rid of it.

I have a tendency to just avoid looking at that number and in all honesty, I thought it was probably around twenty thousand, but I’m a bit surprised that it is properly over.

I can pay a thousand dollars a month, so in a year’s time I should be able to halve that number.  I will be logging in a monthly tally here each month and, hopefully, watching that number go down.

Here goes…
