Woot! 😀 It feels good to see that balance dropping again!
I got my last regular paycheck today from my old job. Because of all of my recent job drama, I’d been holding on to my cash for the last month or so instead of paying down my debt. My new job doesn’t start for another week, but I threw the money at the debt today out of sheer impatience.
