We paid off another student loan!!! It's been along time coming, so I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am! This means we have 1 more student loan to pay off and then our car is next! We finally hit our stride again and our goal is to be completely debt free (except for the house) in 12 months!
I also have a little confession to make. We have been working Dave Ramsey's Baby Steps, but we have made some mistakes along the way. There have been times when we were going strong paying things off and sticking to our budget, but there have been other times that we bought things we didn't need (right then) and gotten into more debt. I say that because this month we also paid off a mattress that we financed. It wasn't part of our original debt and we got 36 month no interest when we bought it. However, this month we also paid it off 2 years early.
I want this confession to encourage you if you are on the journey to be debt free. It is a journey, and sometimes you slip back into your old habits and get a little off track. But that doesn't mean you stop!
