Thanks to my state refund, I have accomplished saving $1000.
Hopefully I find work soon so I do not have to touch that. lol Once I get a job I will still be adding to that AND paying off my debt. Everyone always tells you to save $1000 first and I feel good that I was able to do just that.
I plan to put $10-20 out of every check to my savings and then at least $50 to debt each check. I just need to find a job first. After I am debt free, I will be saving for a house. I'm tired of renting.
