July continues to be a season of abundance in the Hustle household. This post is a mid-month state of affairs due to the fact that EVERYTHING IS AWESOME.
My freelance projects are all plugging along smoothly. I am so grateful for the clients I’m currently working with. One project is quite high-profile, and the client continues to love my work. It stretches and strengthens my skill set in a valuable area, and their continued happiness boosts my confidence as well. The other project is new, fun, and comes in shorter project bursts, which makes for a nice balance.
Hubs (I suppose he would be Papa Hustle, but that just sounds like we’re dealing in illicit materials over here) also had the opportunity to work some unexpected overtime, which allowed us to pay for Little Kiddo’s dental work out-of-pocket instead of our recently re-built emergency fund. (This is our younger child, not our older kiddo who had to have extensive dental work. Thankfully, Little Kiddo just had to have a couple of fillings, nothing major.) Thank you, Universe!
Debt Payoff Challenge
Are you participating in Friday Night Shenanigan’s FREE $1,000 Debt Payoff Challenge? If not, you should totally go sign up right now – it’s not too late!
Here’s a quick preview: the goal is to pay off $1000 worth of debt in 6 weeks – or an extra $166.67 per week. You can achieve this extra payoff however you choose – earning extra money, cut spending, selling stuff on eBay – whatever. And you get to do it in a community of supportive internet friends!
The timing is good for us, despite the fact that we have more dental bills coming up for Big Kiddo. My quarterly bonus just paid out and went straight to our credit card debt, so I’m challenging myself to pay off an extra $1000 on top of that to really get some debt payoff momentum going.
As I’ve mentioned, my eating out and coffee budgets have substantially decreased, and my hustle pipeline is looking solid, so I should have no problem meeting this goal!
