Month 14: -$112,378.52 Welp, here’s the effect of planning a wedding, buying a wedding dress and going on two out-of-state work trips! I barely made any progress at all this month. It makes me not want to even post an update. But, that’s sort of the purpose of these posts, right? A real life look into what it’s like to pay off six figures of student loan debt. Sometimes you make huge ...

I “met” Krysta through blogging a long, long time ago. We’ve stayed in touch through social media. When she asked me if I’d like to try LipSense in exchange for a review I said, “Absolutely!!” Then she warned me that it may not come right away because her baby was due any day, and her trip to the post office would get interrupted if she went into labor. I was ...

Starting a budget can be overwhelming and even scary. But I promise you, starting a budget is one of the best things I’ve ever done for my finances. I follow it loosely now, but I never would have gotten a handle on my money if I didn’t start closely paying attention to where every dollar of mine went in the beginning. Today’s post is written by Josh. Josh blogs over at ...

I have WONDERFUL news! The NFL regular season has begun again. That long drought without football is always difficult for me. On Sunday, J and I threw a party to watch the Seahawks and Cowboys games. We love throwing game-watch parties. They’re a great way to get family and friends together. This year, we’re in a family fantasy football league as well. So, this game watch had an added level of ...

Month 13: -$112,733.39 Every month that I update this, it motivates me to conquer debt and improve my future! I hope it helps you as well. If you want more detailed information, check out November’s payoff report. Remember, calling this “Month 13” is a misnomer. This is year 6 & Month 1 of payoff. Four months ago, I refinanced and I’m still incredibly excited every time I see progress FINALLY made on these ...

I recently moved, rented out my house, and joined homes with J. This means that we have two of pretty much everything. With a wedding to pay for, and student loans always on my back, I knew I wanted to sell what I could and donate the rest. This meant I spent a decent amount of time at Half Priced Books and Runway Fashion Exchange. For the bigger items, I ...

Outdoor music festivals can be really amazing experiences. They can also be SUPER hot! I’ve attended Watershed, a country music concert in central Washington, for the last two years. Trying to figure out what to pack the first year was really difficult. I learned during year one that there’s a festival style that combines comfort in the summer heat, with fashionable, light clothing and just the right amount of accessories. ...

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the debt repayment journey can feel like a never-ending mantra of “No, I can’t do that” or “No, I don’t need to buy that.”  J and I have similar attitudes toward money, and are very open about our finances. But I can still fall into the trap of seeing what other people are doing and getting a little jealous. Heck, I’m still jealous ...

Month 12: -$113,180.25 It has been officially 12 months since I switched my attention from my credit cards to my student loan! Every month that I update this, it motivates me to conquer debt and improve my future! I hope it helps you as well. If you want more detailed information, check out November’s payoff report. Remember, calling this “Month 12” is a misnomer. This is year 5 & Month 12 of payoff, ...

Student loan debt is a trap many former students are caught up in for a large portion of their adult lives. The longevity of the debt has a lot to do with deferments and paying the minimum amount of the loan. The truth is that you should never pay just the minimum payment because it will take a very long time to pay off debt. You really need to cut ...
