I've been reading Suze Orman's 2009 Action Plan, and was sent all in a tither last night. I had so looked forward to going home Thursday night and just relaxing and reading...that is until I read Suze Orman! I thought I'd "leisurely" take in a chapter of her book, but that chapter started outlining the importance this year, more than ever, of getting debt as low as possible because credit ratings are going to fall. Now, I have a pretty good one, but I'm thinking that with a few accounts that are still hanging that debt over my head, that I better get myself squared away.
Well, there went my leisurely night! I ended up going through my financial stuff for over four hours last night, shredding old stuff, putting together receipts and things for taxes, etc. I've known I needed to get things put together so I could go get my taxes done, but haven't had the time or energy to do it. Well...as of 11:30 pm last night, I'm READY to go face the firing squad! :) I actually think I'll be ok, but I'm still a big worry wart. Managing and investing money off of one small paycheck is pretty scary, especially since I'm looking to buy a new car, and would like to buy a place to live...since the market is so good for buying. Sigh...that is, if I'm squared away. Too scary!
Anyone else fretting over this junk?
