6 Month Check-in: Debt Payoff Update

June 16th, 2017 at 10:39 pm

We are still chipping away at the debt. I look back over the previous 6 months and I'm glad that we started and we stayed committed.

We are paid biweekly which means June is a 3 paycheck month. There is still one paycheck left in the month but so far CC#4 has gone from $3599 down to $640, with the interest charge added in there. We've paid down this card by $3000 since last month's update. We are on track to have this card completely paid off by end of the month and I cannot wait to make that last payment. CC#7 paid down by $350, the min payment.

After this we will only have two cards left, which both have 0% interest rate, but we will focus on CC#9 because we want to take advantage of the introductory period for the balance transfers that we made. At our pace, I am hoping to have CC#9 paid off somewhere between September and October.

Lastly, I've mentioned before that DS has been saving his income from part-time employment. He purchased his first vehicle, a used one. All Cash, $3600! We had cash flowed his graduation present which was some of the cost of the used vehicle but most was his savings. He graduated from high school yesterday and we are so proud of him. His AP exam scores will arrive early July, we are hoping he passed one or some of them to get college credit. This will help him with reducing college expenses.

All in all, we are half way through the month and lots of changes and progress!
