It’s been quite a while since I posted to this blog — two months, actually.
There are a variety of reasons: we moved in May, business has kept me exceptionally busy, and after writing this blog weekly for a year and a half, I think I needed a break.
The break has been good, but because of my silence, I’ve got a lot to catch you up on.
We Bought Furniture
In a previous post, I asked for your input on what kind of furniture we should get. We ended up buying high-end furniture for our bedroom, and some mid-level furniture for the office.
The office furniture is 100% paid for. The bedroom furniture is partially paid for; we financed the balance on a 12-month no-interest loan.
I know… debt went up a little bit (as will be reflected in my August update)… but we had to get furniture. And I preferred to buy something that would last for years.
We Sold Our 2nd Car
After eight and a half years, we sold our Hyundai Elantra with the idea we would replace it with something nicer.
Of course, if we buy another car, that will increase our debt. So I’m a bit torn as to what to do.
We’ve Continued to Pay Down Debt
Here are our debt numbers from June and July.
So total debt is well under $30,000 — and credit card debt is well under $10,000.
As I mentioned, our debt has gone up with our funiture purchase, and that will be added in next month.
