Little by Little

Today I made another lump sum payment on my student loan. I paid my $300 extra I've been paying every month and also threw in $28 left over from my April budget. This payment brought my total to 90% paid off! Holla!

I also found out that I we will be having furlough days in June, meaning on the plus side I get out a week early, but on the minus side I lose almost a week of pay from my July check. Ugh. That will definitely hamper my loan payoffs over the summer, but I still hope to be on track to be debt free before my birthday in October.

That's all for now. Just wanted to share my excitement in reaching the 90% mark! :)


  1. That stinks about the layoff, but it looks like you're doing good with your loan pay off!

    P.S. I did not mean for that to rhyme.

  2. You're almost there! Congrats - I always celebrate the milestones to keep me motivated!

  3. Yes!!! 90% :) That is awesome.

  4. Congratulations! That is a huge accomplishment and you should be so proud. I can't wait to say the same thing myself!
