I am a 50 year old divorced mother of two, trying to build financial security for myself. One of my chicks has flown the nest; one is still flapping his wings and preparing for takeoff.
I enjoy reading personal finance blogs and watching Vlogs. I am working on dong a better job planning and budgeting. If I had planned and budgeted better, I would not have resorted to a Heloc draw to pay for my new roof.
I live in the beautiful central valley of California.
Nice! that's almost 9,250 more in assets, and you've shave a percentage off your debt ratio, down from 36% to 35%. (36% is the most total debt that bankers like you to have when they evaluate your suitability for a loan, so moving lower than that target is great!) Congrats!
