Around the same time I had decided that we really needed to work on paying down our car loan, which was around 15k at the time. So before we were kicked out, we moved A LOT of money from savings to paying the car.
Thus, we are left with not much, and this is the first time in my life where my savings have been so depleted. I haven't even been able to move any money to our savings accounts in months because I just really want to get rid of this car loan.
And with all this stress, I am been shopping like a lunatic. It seems like boxes are being delivered everyday and I just feel embarassed about it. I pay my credit card balance in full every month, so that isn't an issue, but still, this is all money I could be saving.
I NEED to get my spending in check in 2009.
