Hope’s Debt Update – mid-November, 2023

0 101

Things are still pretty dire. I am still significantly behind on several “four walls” bills. So there are debt payments that are just not getting paid.

Figured I would get that out of the way, so you wouldn’t wonder why some of these debt numbers are going up!

A couple of notes:

*The website to get my statement and these details was not available so these are estimates.

**I pay this CC off every month and reuse. This and the USAA CC will be left open. But the goal is to pay off and close all other lines of credit.

Catching Up

On the flip side of that, I have contracted out enough work to pay the bills through the end of January. Most of these are one off projects. My regular monthly intake has increased from the $2,200 per month from my part time job to around $2,700. (I will need to allocate some of this additional income to self-employment taxes.)

I am hoping to be caught up with everything by mid-December. This really depends on how timely I will receive payments for these projects. And I’m hoping to resume saving with the $200 from my part time job. I will definitely feel more comfortable when I have some sort of emergency fund again.

I continue to literally pound the pavement on a daily basis. Hitting up and few brick and mortar stores and introducing myself and dropping off a flyer details my service offerings from web design to social media management and everything in between.
