Recieved exit letter for Attorney and under separate cover a copy of his claim against the BK.  funny!
Also recieved a credit card application in the mail, preapproved.  HUH???  Not gonna happen!

April 15, 2013
Signed up for Autopayment directly to trustee office.

April 17, approved for autopay!

April 2013 (Extra payment made by mistake, right before autopay starts) (tax refund sent in)

I AM SO STUPID and it cost me 400.00.
I was approved for autopay, but the law office told me to make my payment via a money order, so I did.  Then I get a notice the the autopay will be on the 20th, so guess what, May got two payments.  DAMN IT!  I needed it, my kids birthday.  The only thing that saves me is that I get  3 paychecks and I have been ultra careful!!!!  But GAH!!!!!!!

May 31st.  Just an update to say… time is CRAWLING right now!  May was the longest month!

June 4, 2013 Approved for a real Credit Card, in the amount of $300.00.  8 months after filing. Found out the card was expensive and called and made sure it was closed.

  1. It is great that you are keeping everything organized. Writing it all down helps you calm negative thoughts and focus on the items that are being done. Great job! I need to be more like that!

    I’m also giving some thought to walking away from my condo (i know you kept yours) since it has devalued quite alot and will never go back up much. Can i know how you came to your decision of keeping the condo?

    • Hello and welcome!
      I have to organize all the paperwork now, that is on my To Do list.

      There are a few reasons I kept my condo, even though it is not ideal. It is small and there is only one bath.

      I looked around at rents and realized that I could not rent out an apt or house for as little as my condo first mortgage payment and HOA. That was huge.
      I was able to include the 2nd mortgage and small 3rd in lien strip, so that at the end of the 5 years, I will not be underwater at all and might be able to rent it out or sell or whatever. Maybe just keep it because my kid will be older (18) by then and the size will be perfect.

      The location of the condo is GREAT.

      I have two cats I didn’t want to drag around town finding rentable places.

      The list goes one why I decided to keep it and strip the liens. I think it was a huge financial decision and will help me in the long run, IF it works. That remains to be seen!

      Are you in Orange County California?
