Coming Clean

This is hard!  Publicly declaring our debt to the masses feels a bit like walking down my street naked - but in the interests of full disclosure, here you go -everything we owe with interest rates.

Personal Line of Credit (10.5%) 14,961.72
Mosaik Mastercard (10.9%) $10,083.17
American Express (18.9%) $965.36
PC Mastercard (19.9%) $2103.26
PC Mastercard (2) (19.9%) $1011.90
BMO Line of Credit(5%)  $24,571.03
TD Line of Credit (4%) $21,765.26
Hyundai Entourage loan (0%) $22,774.40
Family loans (0%) $5,000
Personal taxes $320.01
Federal Taxes (Corporate) $700.00 (approx.)
Provincial Taxes (Corporate) $400 (appox.)
Overdraft $2275.24
Mortgage $386,274.40

We still haven't done our 2010 taxes (yep, been burying my head in the sand on this one) - we will owe though as Nick had 6 months of self employment income.  I'm scared!)

And the grand total is.....

Excuse me while I go puke.

Edit: Annnnnd.... it just got worse.  I forgot that we also owe my mother in law an additional $17,283 (most of this is debt incurred by Nick prior to us getting married.  Much of it student debt).

So that brings the new total to $124,214.52.  Guess I'd better buy a lotto ticket.  Oh wait - that's not in the budget!
