ABDPBT Personal Finance Debt Snowflaking Pageant: Week 5 1/2 Progress Report

ABDPBT Personal Finance Debt Snowflaking Pageant: Week 5 1/2 Progress Report


It’s been a slow week and a half here at the Right-Click household when it comes to debt snowflaking. After the astonishing success of the extra payments of 10 days ago, my little snowflakes seem so paltry and insignificant. But, isn’t it the spirit of the grand ABPDBT Personal Finance Debt Snowflaking Pageant that no amount is too small, no payment too paltry? YES! So in honor of the original thinking that spawned this pageant, let’s review our progress so far:

Week One: $24.28
Week Two: $12.50
Week Three: $0
Week Four: $1,337.28
TOTAL: $1,374.06

This week, a little snowflake fell into my lap in the form of an Amazon Marketplace sale. Total commission: $28.77. I’m throwing that on the mortgage with the rest this morning, which brings us up to a grand total of $1,402.83 in a little less than six weeks. Listen, that’s nothing to balk at. Have I got you motivated yet?

    Just so you know you aren’t in this alone, I am (sort of) snowflaking my tax bill of $1185. I have the money to pay it, but it will wipe out my emergency fund (an recurring situation, it seems), so I’m holding off until the last minute to send it off.

    Here’s what I’ve snowflaked so far:
    $292 state income tax refund
    $185 part-time income
    $100 in Xmas bonus cash
    ???? in change jar (in prior cash-outs, about $85)
    $92 in money saved from my weekly cash allowance

    Total snowflaking to date: $754
