Another 2008 Financial Goal Achieved!

Even though this month’s ugly truth showed a backslide, this doesn't mean it's all doom and gloom in Debt Dieter world.

I got paid today & I’m pleased to report my personal loan has finally dropped below $20,000! This was one of my financial goals for 2008, so I’m happy to see that one happen at last.

Goals 1 and 5 on that list have no chance of happening now (although goal 1 will be pretty close), but I am aiming to get my total debt under the $50,000 mark by the end of this month, just for my own sense of achievement.

The other good news is Credit Card 2 is now under $6,000 too, but I won't know final balances until the November 1 update.
