We have officially crossed the $50k barrier and are in the $40's!! Call me Rosie the Riveter!
While we still have a ways to go, this is a huge mental boost. $49,999 isn't really different from $50,000....but it is. Just like turning 40 was different than being 39. They are all just numbers...but the association we attach to them is what makes them a milestone. We still have almost 2 weeks left in the month, so not all of these numbers are June "totals." I just wanted to share the milestone with you.
Retirement Loan: $10,911.79
Love rolling into the next thousand. In August we will cross into the next thousand, which will make this a 4-digit loan. Since this is an auto-debit from G-man's paycheck, there will be one more payment of $221 next week.
Student Loan: $21,451.44
Nothing too exciting here.
Credit Card: $10,870.39
Mysti's Car: $3,777.00
We are below $4k! Not sure why this number in particular excites me. But seeing the 3 instead of a 4 just jazzes me. This number seems to be gaining some momentum, even though I am not doing anything differently.
G-man's Car: $2,760.00
The payment for the month hasn't been made yet (auto debit on the 27th). I am glad we have been able to shorten the life of this loan.
For a grand total of: $49,740.62!!!
As I already said...this isn't the final total for June since there are more payments that will be made in the next 11 days. But I was excited to share this with you. August is my blogiversary, so I probably won't do an update of numbers until then. July is a 3-paycheck month, so I am looking forward to that as well.
We will be somewhere around $43,000 by the end of the year. So maybe 8-9 months away from the 30's! I could easily pull money from EF or the moving account and make this by the end of the year, but I don't want to pull the cash in case we need it (we know we will need the moving account for the the actual move when it happens!).
I feel positive about things moving in the right direction!
