Let’s All Throw Some Money at Our Problems: February 2013 Check-In
We’re nearing the end of the month and it’s time to check in with our debt payments again. If you’re joining us for the first time, you can read about our decision to publicly keep track of our debt here.
We’ve also decided to start checking in with our savings goals as well. So if there’s something you’re saving for—a vacation, a nice pair of shoes, a wedding, a down payment—you should start tracking it here as well.
