It’s always about the money

One of the things I’ve been worried about, that I’ve talked about before, is the cost of this trip. So I’ve been trying to get my debt taken care of and start to save some money. Which isn’t easy when you are trying to make a movie at the same time.

I frequently resist using up my entire savings to pay off a credit card, even though my interest rate is pretty high and my savings earn almost no interest. I always worry, what about emergencies?

But this week I was doing some budget stuff and saw a spot on my credit card statement that said how much I’ve paid in interest this year.  Then I looked up how much I earned from my savings.

The difference was staggering, so I sent a payment to the credit card immediately. That will pay off one card, and leave me with one other one, which is in a zero percent interest period.

Dealing with money is boring and I know not quite the point of this blog, but until I get my finances under control I can’t buy any gear, so it’s on my mind.
