I gave my notice last night at the toy store. I told them I would stay until the end of the month. They are willing to work with me in the New Year to reduce my hours. But at this point I think I am ready to leave the toy store. Only 6 more shifts.
I also did some calculations today and will be able to clear about $1300 off of my credit card in December. And I worked out what I want to pay off in 2009 by breaking it down into quarters.
In Q1 and Q2 I want to pay off all of my dental charges that are sitting on my credit card. This is about $3392.00 (implants are expensive, but I am happy with my smile)
In Q3 I want to pay off the charge for my new glasses and contacts that I bought last January. $935 (I spoiled myself this year, but had my last pair of glasses for over 6 years...cost per use made this price worth it)
And in Q4 I am going to start throwing money at all of the university charges accumulating on there.
I also decided my credit card can only be used to pay for school in 2009. No more putting concert tickets, groceries, home parties, bus passes etc. etc. on there.
I am happy that I have a plan for the credit card in place. I am thinking about doing this quarter thing with my other goals too. Look at me being all business like :)
