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.

Now that you have the emergency fund complete, try to remember that your extra money goes to the debt...the debt will leave swiftly once you hit it hard....congratulations to you...what an accomplishment you have made.

Thank you. My change jar is cashed in every few months and I add that to a bill. Any money I can scrounge together will also be added. I'm ready to be above water instead of under it.

As long as you have your emergency fund, if the interest rate is high on your debt you would be better putting all your extra money toward it instead of putting anymore in savings.
