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  May 11, 2021

Previous balance  on last Transfer Tuesday Post   $70,314.00

I downloaded a new (FREE) debt tracker this weekend. "Debtris" reminds me of when I had chickenpox 30 years ago and I played Tetris during my recovery. Anyway, the tracker is fun and I like visuals to keep me on track.  There are 200 pieces of the puzzle and each piece is valued at $352.  The tracker has four levels and each level is valued at $17,579.

Today's payment is a payment towards the principal and my first puzzle piece of the game.  I moved $352 from eBay earnings to the HELOC and now the new balance is below $70,000.00

Most of my online sales took place on the weekend and the funds have not yet been transferred to the online checking account. Next week there will be more to share with payments from the other venues.  I was super excited to get the balance below $70,000, and that will change with the next bill and the interest charged, but for now, I am enjoying the small accomplishment.  
Total Payment $352.00  (from eBay earnings account)

New balance   $69,962.00

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

The interest rate is 2.24 percent. We refinanced the HELOC because the first loan was INTEREST only. That was a mistake to learn from. The new loan (started Jan 2021) applies half of the payment to the INTEREST and half to the PRINCIPAL.


  1. What a great idea I love things like this as they inspire me to work harder.

    1. You and your $1000 saving money trackers inspire me!

  2. Well done Lisa! I love those Debtris sheets.

    1. Thanks! I really like them too! The price was right!

  3. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
