my 27th secret is a secret because i'm ashamed of it, but here it goes. i've got $13k in credit card debt, mostly racked up years ago from a combination of foolishness and being broke. thankfully i at least have decent APRs.
saturday i sat down and thought for a while and came up with a snowballing way to get it all paid off in 25 months. november will start my countdown to freedom and my reintroduction to being broke—30% of my gross income is budgeted to my debt.
my credit score has been hovering at 690 for a while. i'll starve if i have to in order to get it well over 700. i've got plenty of fat supply to live off of.
update 6/29/09: in the event more consumerist people pop over here, i'd like to redeem myself and point out i've since gotten down to $9k (haven't been trying as hard as i should, i admit) and hopped over 700.
update 12/6/11: some problems popped up (as they're wont to do), but the debt's almost gone now. my credit score is currently 750 and going up. :)
