Whoa Where Did January Go?

February 3rd, 2010 at 09:11 pm

It's February already?!

January, I was so busy with work I didn't have any time to anything else really. Good for my wallet because there was no time for me to spend my money on anything.

My exciting news from January is that I now have health insurance coverage! I haven't had coverage since I left my job at the bank in April 2008. Crazy I know. Thank goodness for my strong immune system. Everyone around has gotten the flu or cold, and they had their flu shots. I have yet to get sick this winter (keeping my fingers crossed)... and I didn't get the flu shot. Lucky me I guess.

Any other major things happened in January? hmm... I am about $50 away from bringing my Student loan to under $12,000. Yay. This will happen this week since I am now contributing extra payments to bring this balance down faster. Still no credit card debt. I still use my card, not very much but when I do I pay it off right away. I just want to use it so that I can earn airline miles for future trips back to the east coast.

I have yet to do my tax return. I've been too busy to sit down and do it. Mine should be so simple this year, since I only worked in 1 state this year. And another thing on my list of to-do's is get my free credit report for the year. My mom thinks I'm a little bit obsessive about this. I actually like getting my credit report, mainly the score. It's like getting a doctor's checkup, but for your finances. Sort of. Smile

Alright, I think I'll end this blog here. Hopefully I don't let another whole month go by without updating.

    Well I'm a mom, my youngest is 22, oldest 30, middle turns 29 today. I get my credit report annually on my birthday. I do not think you are nuts. Can I adopt you? My daughters don't seem to want to listen to me!

    I check my credit report on this schedule:
    Equifax - January 1
    TransUnion - May 1
    Experian - September 1

    This way I can check it every 4 months for free. I only pay for the Equifax credit score.

    Awesome that you have the health insurance again! It's tough in the States without health coverage, and it can lead to scary moments... what a relief.
