Monthly Progress on Individual Debts
The graph below summarizes my short term debt progress during the month of November. The blue columns represent my debt totals for individual loans as of November 1, 2014. The pink columns represent my debt totals for individual loans as of November 30, 2014. Looking at the debt progress in this format allows you to see that the debts I made minimum payments on only decreased by a relatively small amount.

Roadblocks: New brakes for my car, flight for a friend’s wedding, bachelorette party, wedding gifts for two friends, and niece’s birthday set me back about $1,000 in November! As much as I hate not putting every extra penny toward debt, I love being able to spend money (and not go into debt) to celebrate exciting things happenings in loved ones lives.
November Dollar Hollaaas: Unfortunately, none this month! Next month for sure
