What's for dinner and a quickie update.

Total: 83604.
Credit Card: 10,004.
I am about to have a root canal (never had one and am really scared), and this will have to go on my Discover, then will do a balance transfer at 0% to Visa, so my balance will go up roughly $2000.
Ouch, but it's needed to be done for a long time, and if I put it off any longer, I am afraid I'll end up like poor quest and her painful expensive root canal.
Should have done this post after February 1st, as the total from credit karma as usual is higher than what I actually owe, but it's close enough.
Menu Plan Monday:
Monday: Spaghetti with red sauce and meatballs (Rainman approved)
Tuesday: Chicken Fajitas
Wednesday: Cheesy Chicken Bake with mixed veggies on the side.
Thursday: Crockpot Hot Sauce Chicken with potatoes carrots onions clean out the veggies.
Friday: just me, so leftovers.
Saturday: Food shopping.
Yes, I am in a dinner rut, and the younger two will start complaining soon, need to experiment with some of my go to food bloggers, like the go to blog to avoid eating out and the OMG I love this blog foodie site.
I made blueberry muffins last night, and will make apple muffins Wednesday, for breakfasts and snacks. :)

2012 Goals

Pay off $10250 credit card debt.
Goal June 1st.
Next is pay off the private student loan that NEVER goes down.
Access Group:$18570.

From June 1st -if I then apply my credit card payment to Access, it'll be roughly ten months, so roughly April 1st 2013.

My other two student loans are due to be paid off in less than two years, but they are federal and had low interest rates.

That would leave the mortgage.

Debt hell has a light at the end of the tunnel.

Menu Plan Monday

$84,158 is what credit karma has that I owe, but that's lagging, as I paid off my car loan and and the credit card balances I charged for Xmas (and paid off as soon as the bill came in), are showing as not paid off.
$10,250 ish is what is still owed in CC debt.
Pay off goal is June 1st.
Menu plan Monday:
Monday: Tacos
Tuesday: Chicken Fajitas
Wednesday: BLTs
Thursday:Hamburgers, french fries, apple bake
Friday: Just me, so easy.
Saturday:Food shopping
