20$ to hsbc :)

3/23= 10$

3/25= 10$

Total 480$ to go :) I'm planning on paying the rest by next month and whatever is left over I will use my emergency fund to cover and then pay my emergency fund back with my check the following week. So then there will be no more fee's to pay on Credit Cards EVER again :)

What do you all think?? Good idea...figuring I do not run into any obstacles in the next few weeks this should work.

I got the Job

So the interview went great the pay is very similar to what I'm getting now the benefits are better I will get vision insurance :D and last but not least I'll be in the location I want to be in. The problem they want me to start in April. I'm taking a class that last until May and they are currently trying to figure out what my options are.

So I'll keep you posted.

10$ payment to Hsbc= 820$ left on the card.

CC Debt = 3 digits

I am officially in the 830$ left standing on my Hsbc Credit card

....and may possibly be moving shortly. I have a 2nd interview on Thursday morning it would not be an expensive move but I have a few things that I would need to deal with that being my lease is not up until July and I am taking a class that doesn't end until May. Anyway I would like this credit card to be completely gone before I make any drastic decisions..but sometimes you just have to go with the flow...right?
