October was a crazy month for us financially. Due to some poor planning on my part, our yearly insurance policies came due for payment, and we had to scramble to come up with the money to pay them. I had forgotten to add them to the budget. Silly me. So in additon to our regular monthly bills, we had to come up with an additional $6128.20. My recurring monthly goal of adding no more debt was left behind this month also. For the first time since becoming self-employed, I faced a large Income tax bill this year. So our debt grew by about $3600 this month alone! Yuck!!
