Good Progress!

July 3rd, 2014 at 06:15 pm

I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post! I have been keeping up with reading all of your interesting blogs.

It has been a really good year for me financially. I just received a 3% annual pay increase bringing my annual gross salary to $74,861. I also continue to teach on-line part time at $775 per credit hour. I usually teach 2 class a year (6 credits) so another $4650 for a total of $79,511 gross annually.

I did receive word that the college was going to increase that $775 rate for the fall semester, but I don't know by how much. I also still do swagbucks and earn an extra $100 a month in gift cards. I usually get one $50 CVS and one $50 Walmart and use these for groceries and personal care products. I have also really been getting into couponing and have a really organized coupon binder to help me maximize my savings. It's like a game to me.

I remain debt free other then my mortgage which I have been aggressively paying down. My current mortgage balance is now at $56,444. Since my last post on June 3rd, 2013 I have paid off $31,319!! Sometimes it is hard to remain focused on such a long term goal but when I see this kind of progress it is so worth it!

    You are so close to the finish line on that mortgage. Just think of how much cash you'll free up once you pay it off.
