Man alive, was January super long or what? We did a great job of sticking on budget though, so that felt pretty wonderful.

The downside is that I found out I need about $1,000 worth of dental work done. Ouch. I’m hoping we can spread it out so that we can cash flow the work instead of having to pay in a lump sum.

If you haven’t read my review of the Trim app, you should! We ended up saving $240 in just 5 minutes worth of work. They were able to save $20 on our monthly internet bill. When I got the bill yesterday, it was actually more like $23! I can’t wait to see what they can do with our phone bills from StraightTalk.

Total paid off: $16,369.13
Amount net worth has raised since December 2016: $48,784
