Getting Back to First Base

My February financial figures look OK--Thank God it is a short month!

As you may or may not recall, I wound up January (thanks to Christmas bills that trickeled in late) $784.81 more in debt that I had been the previous month.

NOT a good direction for debt to go!

But in February, I managed to throw $1273.92 at my accumulated debt, thereby putting myself back in the black (metaphorically speaking, since I'm still WAY IN THE RED!) by $489.11.

I'm pleased to have returned to first base, but would really like to hit a home run by the end of the year.

And, uh, yes--that'll be it for the sports metaphors!

Keep up the good work! Push that debt back in black!

What you mean is you accrued $784.81 in new debt, but wrote checks for $1,273.92, reducing the total outstanding debt by $489.11. Just think what you could accomplish if you lived within your means, accrued no new debt, and threw $1,273.92 at the existing debt every month.
