    Thanks. It's all very nerve-wracking as we are still living in our first home and I'm not looking forward to going through selling and buying again.

    The middle of the month paycheck has few things coming out of it so I can throw more at debt, plus I pulled some out of savings.

    Found several hundred in cash at home I’d forgotten about. Deposited it to checking account at ATM and threw that at cc.

    I’ve also discovered this - bank allows up to 3 payments per day on cc. If I skip McD in the am, I round that up to $5 (I get 99 cent coffee via the app) and throw that on cc. Adds up quick!
