Financial Update – November

This article was written by in Monthly Update. Comments Off

Some interesting developments in the last month. First of all, now I’m including my new student loan, since I’ve started getting reimbursed for my MBA. However, I haven’t applied any of the reimbursement to the loans yet. I was holding on to the cash because of the possibility of buying a car. I’ve decided to wait, so after I receive my next reimbursement check, I’ll be making a large payment to my older student loan with the higher interest rate.

I’m also using some of the money I’ve saved up to buy parts for a new computer I’m building. I’ve bought about $350 worth of parts so far.
