Since we moved to NC, DH's car got repo'd and I got way behind on my car payments, like 6 or 7 months. I've been behind since I was 2 months pregnant and we weren't able to pay things off. Now we only have $347.00 to full catch up on car payments and we won't have to look out the window every day worrying about whether the car will be there or not. We should be caught up by the end of this month, then it'll be back to my old regular car payments, not trying to scrape up 2 payments at once to catch up.
CONGRATS!!! i totally know how u feel, SO's car got repoed in oct, hey at least they called us while they where outside we woulda been outta a carseat...maybe they saw that and felt sorry lol, i cant wait to move outta nj everything is soooo expnsive, NC would be VERY cheap to me thats how much it is to live in NJ
Good for you, Kelly. I'm a goodie goodie and always make more than my minimum payment on everything so I can pay it off faster. If I can't afford to make a little more than the minimum, then I can't afford it in my opinion. I just paid my car off in Sept in under 3 yrs and had a 4 yr note on it. We are working on DH's car now!
I never used to pay MORE than the minimum, but I always made my payments ON TIME because I was trying to build up my credit! Then we moved to NC and it all went downhill from there. Once we pay this last remainder, we'll be caught up until January 20th! Then I can just mail in the payments again!
Congratulations! I can definitely relate with financial hardships. We are having some right now. Kevin was promised a promotion that he apparantly got, but they aren't paying him anymore than he was making before he got it. He's looking for another job, because the people he works for now lie and we cannot live on what he's making now. It's embarrassing because I still have all of my bills go to my parents house because I have moved from apartment to apartment and it's just easier to have important things sent there rather than get a change of address, so the overdraft notices go to my parents house and they say things to me about it and it's hard. I think either next month or the month after we will be moving in with Kevin's parents for awhile so we can get a savings going. Anyway, I'm glad things are looking up for you guys and hopefully we will be in the same boat soon!
I just opened a savings account at INGdirect.com - it's strictly online. I have them automatically take out a dollar a week (for now) I opened it with $5.00, there's no minimum and you earn 3.80 anual interest. It just links to your nomral checking account.
