CC payments

February 1st, 2014 at 08:58 am

I got my check today (sometimes I get it he first, sometimes the third...gotta love the government!) so I went ahead and made Feb payments onto two of my CC's. Neither one are due until the middle of the month, but I like getting them out of the way as soon as possible so I make sure they get paid and I don't have to worry about coming up with the money for them later on.

Balance: $248.49
Due: $25
Paid: $30
New Balance: $218.49

Balance: $1003.34
Due: $20
Paid: $30.34
New Balance: $970

Right now I'm on a repayment plan with my LBCC so there is no interest on it and I'm only required to pay $20 a month. Next month is the last month of that plan, but I should be able to get that extended for another 6 months. On the plan I can't use the card, but since it is for Lane Bryant and I no longer need to shop there for clothes, I don't mind not having it anymore. Since there is no interest on it, part of me wants to throw money at it to get it as low as possible before interest kicks back in, but I really need to throw money at my main CC, which has a balance near $5K.
