A VERY pleasant surprise! More debt progress

March 21st, 2013 at 12:41 pm

Remember that lost student loan payment? (How could you forget when I harp on it every chance I get??) I've been halfheartedly checking NT's account every couple of days, fully expecting that it wouldn't hit and I'd have to call and do some more investigating when the next arbitrary deadline they gave me hit.

Well, today, there it was! There was a slight glitch in that they applied it evenly across the loan, even to the paid-off portion, so some parts are showing a negative balance. But I called them and it sounded like a routine thing to adjust, so hopefully it won't take them forever and a day this time. Nevertheless, since the negative balances count against the positive, we still show the full amount paid -- $1140 to principal!

That takes us to a rather heart-stopping $8077 of debt paid this month. I have no words. So pleased beyond belief.

It also takes our big-picture progress to $12,273.35 -- basically where I hoped to be by mid-June of this year!

And, it takes that Sallie Mae loan to less than $10K.

    It's too bad that so many people have adopted Sallie. My own kids cost me less to raise than she costs.
