This week’s financial update is going great. No setbacks thankfully. Another payday closer to being debt free! Let’s get deeper into it.
Exciting times here we made another snowball payment. Another step closer to being credit card debt free. The projected debt free date is September 3rd 2021 but we are only $30.08 away from moving into August! We also finally after like 4 weeks have some money that has been originally budgeted for food and gas. My wife is chipping in towards the debt snowball when she can so that’s always a great thing when it happens. I can’t really add her contributions to the tracker but I love the boosts when they happen.
The snowball tracker that I list all my debts in has my next card being paid off in September but I would like to make some more money and pay it off in August. To make this happen I’ll probably do some Postmates deliveries and sell some more things on Facebook Marketplace and eBay. I need to find the best way to bulk sell some clothes and shoes. I have a bunch of clothes I could part with to help the debt snowball along. I will probably try to do a Plato’s Closet drop off soon. Once I go through my closet. Even not considering the debt I would like to downsize on the amount of clothes I have.
We are working on 5 days straight without eating out. We even have meal prepped or cooked all our meals during the workweek. So here’s to making progress financially and to getting healthier at the same time. There’s plans to prep during the weekend as well. We have not decided what to prep yet but we are getting on track.
The Etsy shop is up and running with a few listings. I would like to have more than 10 items listed before the end of the weekend. No sales have been made yet but I haven’t done any marketing for it yet. I plan to make some debt snowball/budgeting pdfs and spreadsheets and use them on my YouTube channel and promote them.
I also have discovered affiliated websites and want to see what I can do with affiliate links. I purchased OnSaleKicks.com and I plan to list shoes that are on sale with my affiliate links and hopefully we can make some extra money that way.
I researched and realized almost all websites have an affiliate program of some sort. So I need to do more research on exactly how they work.
I want to make some more Postmates deliveries. I should post up a restaurants and wait for deliveries. Currently I try to catch deliveries from my house but I don’t think this is the best or most efficient way to do.
Facebook and eBay aren’t booming anymore. I make a sale every few days now. Hopefully I can pick this up soon. I need to really do a deeper dive on what’s available to sell in the house.
We are making great progress and the motivation is strong in due time the debt will be clear!
