Monthly Progress Report #26

Well, February has been a pretty crazy month for me.

First, my best friend moved to Florida. I’m so happy for her and excited to go visit her! But also low key jealous of the fact she’s talking about bathing suit shopping and we have three - yes, three! - feet of snow on the ground.

This has been the craziest winter in recent memory. I don’t remember getting this much snow in my adult life. You know, since I became entirely responsible for removing said snow. Truth be told, Mike takes care of all of it but I like to chip in by shoveling off the back decks. Hey, it makes me feel like I’m doing my part.

And what happens when we got the monster storm? Our dang snowblower gave up. Luckily it was an easy fix but in the time it took to get the part we ended up getting at least another foot! She’s all patched up and ready to go now - now that it’s finally warming up and we probably won’t see snow for another nine months. So it goes.

Of course, now that I said that we’ll probably get another 3 feet. Ugh. Upstate New York does have some positive though, right? I mean, we have the best summers ever but dang does winter make it so miserable it’s hard to remember what July is like.

Alright, back to my crazy month. The other day I was surprised with a promotion. I’m sure I’ve said this before but - I absolutely love my job. I kind of stumbled into it and it’s been one of the best things to happen to me.

That’s the good news. The bad news is my class is seriously kicking my butt. It seems like nonstop case studies and long boring legislation. Believe me when I tell you I’m counting the days until May when it’s all said and done. Luckily I’ll get a little break over the summer before the final stretch.

In case you missed it, here’s my last monthly progress report. It seems like I wrote that ages ago!

Ok, on to the main attraction!

First, a look at my debt:

Mortgage: $169,300 
Car Loan: $3,300 
Student Loans: $7,850 
Credit Cards: $1,750 
Grand Total of Debt: $182,200 

My student loan balances

I paid off $1,100 in February. That’s a good month. And my student loan balances are below the $8,000 mark again! I think that’s reason enough to celebrate.

I’m making good progress paying off my most recent loan. I love to see progress!

On to my savings:

Savings account: $2,800
P2P Lending account: $100
Investment account: $1,450
Grand Total of Savings: $4,350

My savings grew $100 this month due to market fluctuations. Since my peer lending account is phasing out, I shifted a little bit of money I had accumulated from payments to my investment account. 

It wasn’t a great month savings wise but at least I’m in the black.

That’s another month in the books! This month I saw some positive progress but maybe not as much as I would like on the savings side of things. All in all, I would say it’s been a successful month. 

How was your February? Do you have as much snow as we do? Am I crazy to think this is the worst winter I can remember? 

As always -

Remember, we will get through this ❤️
