Pay It Off



i have been paying on a student loan, and had been deferred for medical reasons for quite awhile, recently i decided just to jump in and start paying it, and i have been keeping a money log of all the unnecessary spending, so far from 2/24, i have spent nearly 300 on eating out, renting movies, coffee, newspapers and other needless items
so next month, i am paying the equivilent of what i spent needlessly on my loan!!!

One thing is you still need to make sure you are allowing yourself some entertainment. Instead of having a television with cable or even a tv box, we use the can get all sorts of movies and programs from the internet... emoticon - by RGRANT79
