I scheduled my final payment for June 13. Once it clears I count this goal completed. And I’ll debt free (expect my student loans). 6 months ago

I let my credit card bill just simmer for the last months (so I could pay off my car). I still owe $441.68. Paying $225.41 on next paycheck. And then I pay off the rest next paycheck. After that I’ll be debt free. 7 months ago
Just one. That’s it!!! And we’re going to pay off some smaller loans before we tackle the final card. Whee, that’s a relief to have that one gone. 8 months ago
Cut one in half, I should be able to eliminate it by the end of May or sooner. Then there is only ONE between the two of us, wheeee! 8 months ago
Woohoo! Income tax came. Credit card is paid off. Closing it as soon as my check clears. 8 months ago
Barring disaster, I should be able to pay this off completely by the end of next month – maybe even the end of THIS month! I’m waiting to be reimbursed for some work-related expenses, and it’s not clear how much I will be reimbursed for (grr), but even a conservative estimate will let me pay off most of this balance (yay!!).
That’s a pretty cool feeling. My fiance has also offered to help me pay off the very last of my car loan(s) this month as well, which will be wonderful. I’m looking forward to helping him pay off his car as well, once all my smaller debts are done. 8 months ago
My desktop computer died. So I had to buy a new computer. While, the computer itself was a good deal I’m back up to $428 in debt.
I want to debt free in five months. So I am going to have $86 a month. I’ll try to put $100 down in April just to keep on top of it. 9 months ago
I usually pay it off in full every month, but last year it got a little out of hand because we had an emergency. That in itself wouldn’t be such a big problem; the problem is that they’re charging me around $30 in fees every month. So if I pay $70, only $40 of that will go towards paying my balance, and the rest is sucked up by the stupid fees.
My income is very small right now, so I can’t make big payments, and with the $30 fee, progress is very slow.
This is very frustrating for me, because I’m used to paying it off in full every month, and now I feel like I’m barely making any progress at all, even though I’m giving them everything that isn’t going towards rent or food. 9 months ago
Next month is going to be a little complicated – I have to go to a conference for work. I will be reimbursed for everything, but I may need to use my card (depending on how my other expenses shake out).
Really good motivation for keeping exquisite track of all my work related spending in that regard! 10 months ago
