Our first step toward climbing out of a deep hole of debt: our highest interest credit card is paid off! And it’s going into a drawer, never to see the light of day. The debt snowball begins. Emergency fund is also in place, seen here (at our non-primary bank). Keep grindin’, PoFi friends!
/r/povertyfinanceI could cry right now. I’m a senior is college and that credit card has been maxed out since my freshman year at $3400. This year I’ve paid of $7k+ in debt working full time while attending school full time. My tax refund helped, but that’s all going towards my newly refinanced car. Finance moves!!
/r/povertyfinanceDon’t know if this belongs here, but hey anyway that I can contribute.
/r/povertyfinanceFinally my refund is here! After anxiously waiting so long! Time to clear some debt! :)
/r/povertyfinanceWas just approved for my first credit card and my balances are looking good! :)

/r/povertyfinanceIve been saving up for 4 months to be able to buy this deep freezer. Come to find its on sale at home Depot for $159 (originally, $200). Now I can save some money on food by buying in bulk and freezing it. Just wanted to share my good news with this community, y'all are the best.
