For many months now, we’ve been in the unfortunate position of Financial Instability. On Friday, our roommate paid his rent about a week early, giving us enough to cover the rest of the bills for the month. On a silly oversight on my behalf, I updated our Financial Calendar to reflect the cash inflow on Friday, but forgot to remove the expected cash inflow on the actual rent due date, leading me to believe we had finally reached our goal of Financial Stability!
As a result of my error, I excitedly put the extra cash ($54.52) I thought we had in our checkings account towards our HELOC balance. Not an entirely foolish thing to do (at least it’s reducing our debt!) but it does delay us reaching our goal of Financial Stability.
However, unless we can come up with another $131.72, our expected date of Financial Stability is still Friday, March 4th… We are soooo close!
