If you are new around these parts, the Mister and I took the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University course through our church at the end of 2015. We have a goal to knock out the remainder of our consumer debt in 2017. You can catch up on our journey by checking out our previous recaps:

April Budget

The big expense with April was the fact that I was out of town on vacation for 10 days. I spent most of the time visiting my family in Spokane, and because I was staying with my parents, I didn’t have to pay for lodging or food for most the trip.

The other possible budget buster for the trip – we found out that we needed new brakes in the Mister’s car. Thank goodness for our emergency fund.

April Victories & Blessings

Our Financial Peace Journey: April 2017 What we're doing to knock out the remainder of our debt snowball in 2017 and start living debt-free.

I have to say that I’m really grateful our family members are so generous. My mother-in-law decided to gift us with some spending money for my trip, and while I was in Washington, my parents took care of groceries. My step-mom also treated me to a mani-pedi.

 

A couple other victories include the Mister picking up some home repair and yard jobs. I also won 5 dollars at the casino in Spokane; in my mind, walking away with more money than you started with is victory, no matter how small the win.

Progress on our debt snowball was about $600 this month.
