Debt Update 7/24/15

July 27th, 2015 at 07:59 am

Wow another 2 weeks is gone by already?! Time flies when you have so much craziness!

This 2 weeks we went down $780.30, and $3334.08 since 6/19/15! All this while preparing for a wedding and buying a house!

Still continueing to pay minimums and sock it to savings until the house closes. We were told a week ago that they thought we should close by the end of the month.....but that is in 4 days and we haven't been given a closing date yet, so I am thinking that isn't going to be happening. We will call today and see what the status is.

Debt Update

July 14th, 2015 at 07:00 am

Whoo hoo down $2878.48 in just 2 weeks of paying down debt! The last $6K from my Mom cleared so we applied that to the Ring. So now the only bad interest we have is the Ring, about $3K at 9.99%. If all goes well with the closing of the new house, we hope to have the ring completely paid off by New Years!

P.S. I tried to use Paint as suggested, but I think I was missing something.....I got the spreadsheet pasted into Paint, but then couldn't really figure out where to go from there....the "crop" button was greyed out so I couldn't use it.

P.P.S The starting total/date doesn't look right because I put in my starting mortgage total....but I put in the date that DF and I started paying down debt together....how should I put it to make it look right and not like we paid off $100K in a few weeks...lol. Change the date or change the starting amount of my mortgage to the amount it was on 6/19/15? I am leaning towards amount and just personally knowing that it started a lot higher then that.

$20K Update - $25K!

July 12th, 2015 at 04:04 pm

Debt Update - Loan from my Ma!

July 2nd, 2015 at 10:33 pm

Well I have an awesome mother. She offerered to loan me and DF $15,000 to payoff some of the high interest debt. WOW. She must love me or something!? I was completely surprised at her offer, and we are so grateful!! The loan is at 4% and we will be paying her $300 per month and planning to pay her off early.

$9000 of it has cleared, so we used it to payoff the Total Rewards Card and the LOC - US Bank. Also DF got rent from his renter so paid back the $400 to savings, and we took $630 out of savings, plus $300 from DFs paycheck to payoff the Scheel's Card. So already some HUGE progress! Once the other $6000 from my Mom clears the bank we will put that against the ring debt. Depending on how things go with the new house, maybe we can even pay the ring off before the New Year?? Then we will focus on paying back my Mom as the next priority, as at that time it would be our highest interest other then DF's mortgage at 4.5%.

I am not sure I like using a picture of my Excel Sheet, but I guess it's better then trying to format with the blog page.
