Today I updated my monthly student loans accounting sheet, and realized it is August 2013. So I flipped back to August 2012, because for months now I have been noting that “I’ve paid off X loans since August 2012,” which is when I really kicked into loan-payoff high gear.
Sure enough: my student loans today sit at $25,002 and one year ago they were $64,469. That’s right, $39,467 paid off in 12 months! Boom. Not only that: I paid off the remaining $11,500 balance on my car loan in November with my emergency fund. $50,967 total loans paid down in a year baby!!! Millionaires are made $10 at a time, and the debt-free get there one paycheck at a time I guess.
Do you have any financial anniversaries or accomplishments to celebrate, or goals you’re excited about? I’m all for a virtual happy dance even if (especially if?) it makes me look like a nut in my swivel chair at work.
