After discovering Rockstar Finance Directory, I spent some time sifting through all of the blogs there. I was interested in reading the experience of others in my age group who started from a position in debt and were working their way out. As I did this, I decided to post about personal finance blogs that I enjoy reading. It gives me some incentive to keep exploring and reading and reaching out to a community of like-minded individuals on a similar journey.
HOLY CATS! Good news, everyone!
I’m getting a tax refund!
How did this magical, sparkly goodness happen, you ask?
Please allow me to spin my tale of darkness, woe, a change of fortune and eventual triumph.
Remember when I explained that I have two “extra” paychecks per year? One of them came in this week and I had been waiting eagerly to decide what to do with it. I could apply it to my scary 401(k) loans, or reduce my credit card balances, or add it to my savings for some extra cushion, or even invest it.
What did I decide do with my extra paycheck this week? I used it to punch my credit card debt in the face.
Okay, it isn’t really diabolical, but it is probably the closest I’ll ever come to anything even nearly diabolical, so please let me have this.
