Transfer Tuesday


Hello Tuesday!  This is the day that we make an extra effort to pay down our debt.  Most every Tuesday we apply extra cash (whether it be BIG or small) to our outstanding debt.  This helps keeps us aware of and accountable for our debt. And it all makes a difference.

My last Transfer Tuesday was June 16th

Previous balance  $78,142.20
  • $1000.00 payment from eBay earnings( includes payment of $285 for the monthly bill)
New balance     $77,427.20

When we started paying down the debt in Sept 2019 we were at $95,853.00

My inspiration for Transfer Tuesday is Pennies Not Perfection

We have had several medical bills, the hubs had cataract surgery on both eyes, ($3500.00) I had an MRI on my shoulder ($385.00) Perscriptions for hubs eyes pre and post-surgery ($250.00) Ortho office visits ($80.00) I think that is it.  

I pulled more money from eBay savings and some from an RMD payout from last year.  The bills are all paid and let's hope that is it for now :-)

eBay is slowing down a bit, but there are still some sales happening.  I am still working on listing the Noritake that was given to me by a friend.  Free is always good.

There is lots to get done today, mow the yard, pack up a few things for eBay, clean bathroom, and work on eBay shelves in the garage.  There is plenty more to get done, but that is it for now.

Sidenote:  I looked for an hour for the airchuck to blow up the mower tires.  It was not where it was supposed to be and luckily my son in law had one in his truck.  Good grief, I finally got the mower ready to go and was able to mow about half the front yard, and here come the rains.  Now the yard looks sketch and I am over it for today lol.

This may be my favorite Crepe Myrtle this year.  I love this color!


  1. Lisa just looking at your pay off total gave me courage. I am going to have to do the exact same thing, but I will be paying back myself.

    1. Kim, you have a sense of determination that inspires many of us! I can't wait to see how quickly you accomplish your goal!!

  2. I had three of this color in my yard. I only had three...lol. It is the color I will buy again.

    1. Only three? I may need to get a couple more of this color too! There are two more late bloomers in our front yard, a lilac color and another favorite, candy cane. It is a double ruffle of red and white. It may be my second favorite!

  3. The Crepe Myrtle looks beautiful, what a lovely colour it is.

    All the best Jan

  5. Congratulations on the great job paying down the debt. That is very wise, especially in this day. Don't you feel better as it drops? Debt drives me crazy. I feel like it is a weight on my shoulders.
