My Debt Roundup – September 2011

Last time I blogged about money was more than nine months ago. In my estimate then, I would have had debt reduction by $2,000 and be in sub 10,000 debt level. Not close enough. Then, I thought my debt would have decreased slowly but instead I find it increased by about $4,000 to 16,021. So what did I do to increase it? These are my major expenses. I was quite a social traveler this year – and I don’t regret this expense at all. Next, I spent on home improvement items such as new furnishing, bedding, etc – I am ok with this expense – time for me to grow up. Next I spent around $600+ on food per month. I feel this is somewhat high for a single man to spend  per month on food. So, next step is to reduce my food budget. I also feel my debt increase is somewhat due to lack of blogging. Blogging provides a constant reminder to be financially discplined. So here again, without making any projections etc –towards the freedom from debt. 


  1. Owning up to your debt is vital to conquering it. Have you attempted to take up part-time work so that your added expenses are covered? What about trying to make passive income, such as through affiliate marketing or article writing? I managed to earn my entire mortgage back when I did freelance writing on the side. Anyway, good luck to you!
