I paid it off! I was finally to the point that my savings account balance was higher than my student loan balance. I couldn't resist. I am now 100% debt-free! It feels fantastic :D Now the question is, will I continue to sock away the same funds at the same rate for savings? I've already adjusted my...

Well this week started off swimmingly... at the annual company conference call it was announced that we would all be receiving pay freezes for this year. :? :( Lots of promises from the company top management and owners that we are just riding out a rough tide in the economy and those who stick it o...

Setbacks are disappointing :(

Had a car repair and vet bill that had to be paid in lieu of paying an extra $600 these past few weeks. So I am only down to $8100.

Nevertheless, it will still be paid off soon enough!

I'm aware mortgage interest rates are "historically" low and wanted to research refinancing. After doing our taxes I realized the mortgage on our house, in my husbands name only, is 6.00% with around $42,000 remaining balance. I am completely naive to the refinance process and understandin...

I've been with my current employer for nearly 2 years. The company is in expansion mode and it is bumpy. I've not been with a company during an expansion before and I suppose what I am witnessing is not unusual; power plays, employees who grumble about change, new processes that cause chaos and so o...

Just wanted to drop in and say that I broke the $10k barrier at the beginning of the month and I'm still on track to have this sucker paid off by Nov. 2012. Ideally, I would love to see it gone by September, but work bonuses haven't been substantial enough to toss any extra toward it. Also, at the b...

End of year - $11547.08

I wanted to be closer to $10k, but work bonuses have not kept pace with my insatiable desire to git'er done :P

Upward and onward to 2012 and the death of the student loan! :D

Alright, nearly 2 months later and here is where I stand:

I'm down to $13.4k and increased my monthly repayment to $1100. My hope is that by September of 2012 I'll be done with this brick!

I'm in! Took out $20,500 to obtain a MPH. Paid just interest on it while in school so as not to let it get capitalized. Came out of deferment in Nov 2010. Currently I have paid it down to $15k... I dedicate a minimum payment of $400/month and throw the majority of my work bonuses at it too! I have n...

Silly question: I currently have my Roth with ING, but realize the more I read that Vanguard is probably the better option. I know there is a $75 transfer fee from ING, but I'm not sure the rest of the logistics. Do I sell all my investments first or does closing out the account take care of that? I...

I don't have a philosophical issue with what Amber suggests. But there are a few issues to consider. First, as bpqui says, the number of days must be legal. You can really screw up the process if you don't follow the law. Second, while verbal agreements are perfectly fine in many situations, real e...

He's always been somewhat apathetic about his landlording. The property in his name and was purchased long before we even met. It's nearly paid off and he doesn't see it as costing him when in reality it does, but that's a whole 'nother issue. We have separate accounts and don't co-mingle our financ...

I'm pretty sure that she has money as she has a steady job. She has not given a reason for not paying rent and DH has not bothered to ask. I've just this morning heard through the grapevine that she is saving for a down payment on a house. I guess that explains where all the rental money has been go...
