I'm winding up August with a total debt reduction of $1021.34. As always, much of that ($740.71) is mortgage reduction, which leaves only $280.63 in reduced credit card debt. But down is down, so I'm satisfied. August is a tough month, financially, in the best of times, given the need for school clothes, entertaining the grandchildren, etc.
September looks to be even worse since I've got to come up with my granddaughter's college tuition, and start work on some repairs to my rental house.
At least I don't have to check my retirement funds or the value of my home. I do my net worth quarterly, so the stock market and housing market has another thirty days to get up there!
