As a financial blogger, sometimes I like to think that I’ve got my shit together.
The truth is, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I fuck up royally, and guess what folks, it’s this month.
See, I’ve been sort of hiding something from everyone, and this is the month I get it off my chest. It’s kind of embarrassing (OK, really embarrassing, especially for me):
For the past several months, I haven’t been making extra debt payments according to the plan I’m on.
In fact, I’ve only been paying the minimums on my debt. What’s worse is that Zach had no idea, either.
So we instituted a big change going forward: even though Zach’s not a budget nut like I am, we’ll sit down every couple of weeks to do a budget check-in. This will provide me with some accountability as I run through our budget each month. Hopefully it’ll work and we’ll still get out of debt before we’re 105!
