Amazed, looking back, that it was ever on my mind! It’s interesting to see the stuff i thought about back then. 1 month ago
Just found out that my dental work was not covered by insurance, it will have to be paid first… Then a portion of my pay check will be garnished by my work because of a mistake they made months ago… Oh well. I can only focus on the present. One day at a time. 1 month ago
Making extra effort not to spend much on small stuff. Today we agreed not to go to the movies.I was bringing lunches to work for a few days, that should free up an extra 100. But credit card has to be paid off first… 700 to go. 2 months ago
Loan 1: 12,611 @ 4%
Loan 2: 19,071 @ 2.69%
Loan 1: $6,997 @ 4%
Loan 2: $18,753 @ 2.69 %
That is paying almost 6k in 5 months! My goal is to have loan 1 paid off this year and then I just have to focus on Loan 2, it will be such a relief to only have one… can’t wait. 2 months ago
Needless to say this was a huge set back in paying back the loan. However, getting back on track pronto! 3 months ago
I’ve graduated two years ago after earning a college degree. You would think that by now, I would have made some progress of paying off my loans. I don’t know how much money I owe in student loan debt.
I took out 2.5 years of U.S. Department of Education loans around $24,000. This is an estimate.
The first step is to tackle how much I owe. Have you paid off your student loan debt or working on it? How did you do it? Feel free to share below, this is going to be a bumpy road ahead. 3 months ago

.......... bring it on!!!!!!!! 3 months ago
Today, I’m making my last student loan payment. It feels amazing. It took me about four years since graduation to pay nearly $90,000 off. I’ve had to make a ton of sacrifices but it was all worth it. Now, I can focus on building my financial future! 3 months ago
Dec. 2013: $15,440
Mar. 2013: $12,970
In the first third of this year (end of April), I will have paid more than I paid in all of 2013. That’s nice, but I have other things I need the money for. I’m stressed out about the house – it desperately needs siding – and about the car.
Options: Get a second job, which I don’t think I could handle right now. Get a roommate, which I hate and requires that I clean the house. I need to buckle down to one of them, though.
Good news is that I’m still in the running for a civil service job, and that job would pay a portion of my monthly loan payments. 4 months ago
