We are NOT debt free yet.
Only have about $5k in student loans left.
One cool thing is how close we are. But it’s also making me really anxious because we could write a check and make it all go away at anytime. But that would leave us a little too cash poor for my comfort level.
It’s funny because back when we didn’t have enough cash to pay it off with one check I never felt this way. We just made the payments and didn’t think about it much. But now that we are sooooo close it’s on my mind even more. I guess it’s just the fact that would could pay it off if we really wanted to that’s making me feel this way.
It’s really odd and I was not expecting it.
Anyway, should be gone by April 2017!!! Yay!!!
I CAN NOT wait to start throwing that money (about $900/mo) towards savings and investing.
(Oh, this also includes just a little bit of Tax debt from last year AND getting caught up on this years taxes. Which we are thankfully able to handle with our income. We will be all caught up on that stuff by April too!!!)
Wow, that will really change things for us next year.
