Credit cards

September 29th, 2015 at 07:29 am

I decided to borrow from the college fund to pay off four credit cards with outstanding balances. I'm cancelling automatic withdrawals for auto,homeowners and umbrella insurance policies. I seem to forget to include them in the budget and at the end of the month I find myself scrambling to pay them in full. Just not working for me. Credit Card usage will be at a minimum if we want to save 60% of our salaries. I should be able to replenish the college fund by December. We only have one outstanding balance at 0% for 14 months. We plan to pay it off by then.

    Sometimes it does just feel better to pay them off when the cash is just sitting there. Nice job!

    Since you are looking at changing automatic insurance payments, would it be more cost efficient to carry vehicle,homeowner and umbrella policies via one carrier generating a multi policy discount? Is the deductible appropriate to your financial circumstances? Are premiums competitive with other carriers? Is the coverage adequate for value of properties [house, vehicles, personal effects]?
