Buh-bye cc#2 (and good-riddance!)

February 22nd, 2013 at 08:34 pm

Today was payday for the hub and I. I decided to move money from ING.... *ugh* I mean Capital One, to go ahead and payoff CC#2 today. I will transfer that money back to Capital One on the 8th and save whatever interest would have accumulated on the debt. I updated the sidebar. Total debt payoff in Feb is an all time one-month record for us... $11,264!!

I am eager to see what all of this does to our credit scores!

Now, on to cc#3!

The investment counselor gave me a to-do list before our meeting. I need to get the hubs most recent pension projection, our social security statements, current 401k information and investment options, and an idea of what our tax advisor suggests for Roth vs Traditional as far as tax bracket calcs.

The hub will be going to see our accountant while he is home to get our taxes done. Last year, we received a good sized refund- I anticipate that being the case again- potentially even more, since the hub was in Alaska more than half time and may not have to pay Oregon taxes??? Not sure, but I am eager to find out. I didnt calculate a refund into the debt payments, so whatever we get will go towards cc#3.

Tonight is my date night with my oldest GS (8). He is my carnivore who will want steak for today will not be a no-spender.

A week from today we leave for our Cali/Disney trip. So much to do between now and then!!!

    To work that is, not just to get rid of
    And I just noticed you changed your page colors?

    Congratulations! That is awesome!

    My page colors are different LF...but I am not sure how that happened...I must have clicked something when I was changing the sidebar info. Im fairly illiterate when it comes to techy type stuff, so it doesnt surprise me.

    There are pros and cons to Alaska slope employment, but the pay is definately one of the pros- for us, it outweighs by far any of the cons...but its not for everyone. There are jobs up there to be had, however, especially during the winter months.

    Thanks everyone. I am pretty excited with our progress so far. Definately have a new bounce in my step!!!!

    I'm personally protesting the loss of ING by still calling it ING. Big Grin But that's just me. Smile
    Way to go on the payoff!

    We have 3 weeks to go before we leave for our Disney trip. I am looking forward to it. Congrats on the debt payoff. Doesn't it feel good?

    Oh, and I still call it ING, too.

    My hubby likes to visit up there, but I don't think he would want to be gone so much. My dad, on the other hand, should really try to get hired up there. He'd love it.
