In early July, I called to try and get my 19.24% interest rate on CC1 lowered. Didn't work, and to add insult to injury....they slashed my credit limit to $189 above the balance at the time.
I am mildly proud to say 4 months later....I have a little over $1100 in credit available. I have paid almost $1000 in principal on that card. (never mind that I have spent almost twice that in payments just to keep up with the interest.)
It is frustrating though that we aren't making headway. Granted, we just bought new blinds for a few windows (inexpensive, but not the cheap-cheap ones we have that keep breaking). And have we gone out to eat a few times...yeah. I just wish we would find the right formula to really start to make progress.
Add in the stupid medical bills......GRRR.
