I decided to end my August budget a little early so I zeroed it out on Saturday. I took the $70 extra from August and applied it to my puppy bill. Now I owe myself $104 for the puppies and $220 for the air conditioner repair. That's still too much debt.
While I was mulling over my debts at work today I remembered my equity account refund that I got in July. I was going to keep it as a 'just in case' fund or maybe a travel fund (oh well). Now I'm going to use that $242 to wipe out the AC bill and bring the puppy bill down to $82.
I could probably get rid of that $82 bill by the end of September but wouldn't you know it, now my brakes are squealing. That means I get to take it in to the shop this weekend. I found coupons online but it's still going to cost at least $150 if I need front and back brakes. Maybe I only need fronts.
One of these months I will catch up again. I don't want to skip another extra mortgage payment. Hopefully my renters will pay in full next Tuesday so that I will be able to take another month off of my mortgage payment plan. I've been hovering at 1 year and 3 months for too long. I can't wait to get to the one year mark!
