This gal just paid her very last mother-effin’ student loan payment!!
This heavy financial burden took 10 years to pay off, at $350 per month. I can finally take that money — as much as a frickin’ car payment — and start paying down the other debt I’ve accumulated. AND I might just have enough to bump up my 401(k) contribution.
Y’all, this was a huge triumph. OK, so it was “ONLY” $30,000 in student loans. I work with lawyers who have a couple HUNDRED THOUSAND dollars in student loan debt, so my measly 30-grand is only a spit in the barrel comparatively. That said, they also make the money to afford to pay down that massive debt. I don’t know how they do it with mortgages, nice cars, and kids.
But today I don’t care about anyone else’s finances. I can only celebrate my own step towards becoming debt-free, or at least debt-manageable. And I feel soooo gooood!
