Debt Update - 5/13/16

May 19th, 2016 at 05:38 pm

Here is my update with the Appliances and the HELOC paid off! Even though the HELOC is just "moved" it still feels great to see it at $0!

Celebrations for this update:
-Total debt went down $2,563.86 in the last 2 weeks!
-Appliances Loan is paid off!
-HELOC is paid off!
-Store Loan went under the next $1000 mark!
-Our Mortgage went under the next $1000 mark!
-Total debt went under $540K!

We were in need of a tiller and were shopping around, my MIL had one that she said we could just have as she has a lot of medical issues and doesn't do much for gardening anymore. She owes MO $450 that she borrowed from him last year. I suggested that even though she was willing to give us the tiller for free, to just say that it was an even trade for the tiller to pay off the loan. So now we have a tiller and we don't have to worry about that loan anymore (she had only made one payment on it in the whole year and it was causing some anxiety/awkwardness, so I am glad we don't have to worry about it anymore). The tiller was only 2 yrs old and still had a tag on it for $750, so I think it was a good deal for all.

We plan on lumping our savings in our Cap360 Savings to make a big payoff to the new Mom Loan on 1-2 yrs. In the meantime we will just be making regular payments on everything for now

Student Loan $0
Payback Savings $0
David's Bridal $0
Scheel's Card $0
Total Rewards $0
LOC - US Bank $0
Ring Iddeal $0
Best Buy $0
Store Loan $11,897.25

My Mortgage $156,600.00
Our Mortgage $253,943.88
Total = $537,809.61

Down $2,563.86 in the last 2 weeks!!

Starting total was $587,351.27
$49,541.66 paid off since 6/19/15 (including downpayment on house).

We have $135.00 in a savings account to pay off the Mom Loan, so the amount we still owe that is $27,865.00.
