    NSD 4 today - needed to add medications and car related expenses to our visa this week so the total has gone up but there was no choice .
    I really need to build up an emergency fund for these things but just can't seem to find the extra $ for it right now. Was thinking that if I sell things maybe I should put that into he emergency fund rather than paying the visa?
    I have updated my signature with the new visa amount and started it at 0 again - not sure I will get it paid off by christmas now though
    Grocery challenge - $150 for Oct 0/150 NSD 6/18
