We did it! We’ve met our goal of paying $4,000 towards our HELOC! It happened faster than we expected and that’s good because now we have another financial goal thanks to an unexpected blessing. We have to shift our focus temporarily.
I’m pregnant with baby #3 due in the spring. It’s very exciting, but that blessing comes with financial responsibility. Because we have a high deductible insurance plan, we have to pay the first $4,000 of medical bills before the insurance pays anything. Our goal is to pay everything in cash as the bills come in.
Have you ever had something unexpected shift your financial goals? How did you handle it?
