My debt payoff- updated!


The last time I updated this, I owed $12,333.78 on the student loan. As of today, the current balance owed is $11,899.22! I am happy that it has fallen below the $12,000 mark!

I got paid a quarterly bonus and put most of it towards the student loan. Also, I have paid off the Home Depot Credit Card that had 0% for 12 months before the promotional period expired.

Ultimately, I’d like to pay off this student loan before the year is over, but that seems like a pretty hefty goal, so I’m going to go with 2 years, or 24 months to have it paid off.

    I love to hit little milestones with paying off our debt. Congrats for being under the $12000 mark!

    I try to update our financials goals on the first of every month. I keep a lot better track of where we are and I project out to see where we’ll be. We just started in July, but I’m hoping we will have shaved off 10% of our debt by the end of the year (or Jan 1st, 2011). I think that is a pretty big goal, because the end of the year is full of little extra spends.

    Congrats and good luck!!

    It feels so good to see debt going down faster than it has to. All we have left we are paying interest on is our mortgage. It’s a little depressing because it’ll be years and years before that’s gone, but we are hoping to pay it off early. With a mortgage, we’ve found that just a little extra money thrown into the payments can make a pretty big difference in how long you’re paying.
