Things are looking pretty good, especially since summer is often when my budget gets shot to pieces.
I lowered my overall debt by $1075.14--it would have been $50 more if I hadn't incurred a $50 balance transfer fee when I moved one of my credit cards to a "zero interest for nine months" card. Other than that, I did not increase any other balances.
My 401(k) funds are headed up, and now stand at $142,108--still not at the $174,000+ they were in October, 2007, but increasing nicely and at least they are NOT at the $89,654 they fell to in March, 2009.
I have until August 18th to come up with the car repair monies for Firestone--it looks more or less feasible at this point, so I've got my fingers crossed.
