Bills Bills and more bills

March 1st, 2011 at 01:53 pm

We all, managed to get the credit cards down to "only" 3 with balances. The balances are scarey with one being almost to the limit. Another is over the limit but I didn't do that. Ah well I'll be the one paying it anyway. I am trying to stay within our means but it took a hit when the car died and we had to get a "new" one. We had to put the down payment on the card. The car company had us over a barrel and I'm still not sure we made the right decision We owed too much on the old one to have a lot of bargaining room. Now our payment is higher than the house payment, something I said I'd never do. Sigh. Still paying more than I have to on two of the cards in the hopes I can get it taken care of in a reasonable amount of time.

    That's what I used when trying to figure out how to pay down my credit cards. I'm currently paying them down. I'm sorry about the car. We are saving for a new car ourselves. It's tough. The rule I now follow, is save money for a new car starting the day you buy one. That way, when it comes time to get a new car, you have a great down payment. It's not helpful now, but it will be one day. Wink

    I hope that you are able to get that car loan paid down soon, that has to lead to some frustration. However, once you have some insurance of a reliable vehicle then you will be able to feel situated. Good luck with everything...
