Let’s All Throw Some Money at Our Problems: August Check-In
It’s been another month, which means it’s time to check in with our debt payments. If you’re joining us for the first time, you can read about our decision to publicly keep track of our debt here. And then you should totally participate, because watching those numbers go down each month feels good. So let’s get to it, shall we?
