Im finally on the right financial track since I am starting to pay off my $20,000 credit card balance since I stopped using the card and am now paying more than the minimum due. Also, I just started contributing to the retirement plan at work as well and also started putting a little in a savings account. Doing all this is pretty much maxing me out and not giving me much spending money but at least I feel like I am heading in the right direction.
However, heres the problem: my house needs a new roof. I have been putting it off for over 5 years. Now It absolutely must be done in a few months when it gets warm. That will be between $5K-$7K. Obviously I don’t have that money but if i want to have a house, it must be done. I also have some other things that need to be done as well. Do you have a suggestion about the best way to pay for this?? So here i thought I was heading in the right direction but now I will be in worse shape and more debt.
