Debt progress

March 12th, 2013 at 08:58 pm

A student loan payment hit with $238 to principal.

That takes us to $1899 down, $4871 to go on the March debt goal. And $6095.35 down, $591.65 to go on the big-picture benchmark for March.

Tomorrow night I should get another nice bump, and of course later in the week our big tax refund will take quite a bit off the amount.

I figured out a way to calculate the average interest rate of the loan (since different chunks of it have different interest rates). By paying down the higher-interest debt first, just that $238 payment took us down .02% on the interest rate. Pretty cool.

    You are just steam rolling these debts! I'm not ready to post my student loans yet, at this point I'm making income based payments.

    Thanks guys! CCF, it has not. Tomorrow marks 6 weeks and it was supposed to take 4-6 weeks, so I'm going to start rattling some cages if I don't see it tomorrow. I added a reminder on my budgeting spreadsheet so I wouldn't forget! Smile
