Year End Statement

Here's a look at how my accounts shape up here at the tail end of 2005. You'll see a new bit of CC debt with the CO (Capital One) Credit Card. That was for some repairs to my vehicle.

2006 looks to be an exciting year, both personally and financially.
  • We're getting married in May. Merging of finances has already begun to a certain extent, but will continue throughout the year.


  • Much of the savings I have now will likely be eaten up with the wedding and honeymoon.


  • I hope to have my car paid off by mid-year. That will be almost 3 1/2 years early.


  • We'll be looking into beginning the process of getting some land from my parents and planning and building a house there.


  • I hope to see my web ventures continue to grow and make me some side income.

Interesting subject to write a blog about... since you're getting married soon.. might want to check out my blog about wedding ideas 'Til Death Do Ua Part for my own... I'm pinching pennies as well! I also am a wedding photographer so there might be some ideas on my photography blog!

If you haven't heard, I am organizing a "net worth challenge". If you are interested in participating, please drop by the following web site to get more details. For the time being, if you can post (at the below URL) your 2006 end of year goal, we might be using that information as part of the challenge.

Here is a site that will show you how design a plan so you can pay off your car well ahead of schedule.

You may have already heard about various accelerated debt reduction techniques and strategies. The www.go2self.org/stop site offers a step by step training program with the option of getting a proposal before subscribing to the training. There is a fee for the training but the final cost is guaranteed to be zero, nothing, nada.

The ‘new’ accelerated debt reduction technique is also a budgeting and bill paying method that has aided 100’s of people by independent agents in face to face presentations and subscriber services (view the Case Studies). Training is now available by e-learning using MOODLE to either self-train to develop at your own pace or with the aid of ‘personal trainers’ to quick start the learning, training and method application process.
