Last SL Payment!


#1

I just made a huge payment to pay off our student loans!

This also represents the last of our non-mortgage debt, of which we’ve now paid off $75,000 in the last 3.5 years.

You all are the first to know :grin:
I’m still trying to decide if I should share on FB… I know it’s a huge brag, but maybe it would inspire someone? I don’t normally share very personal things though. Thoughts?

Congratulations! That must feel amazing, and is a great accomplishment!

If you share on Facebook, be forewarned you might not get the responses you hope. Some people will be jealous, or use your success as a reason to make excuses as to why they can’t do it. BUT you might inspire someone else. So only you can decide if the risk is worth the reward.


#3

I vote that you share. People should know it’s okay to pay down debt instead of building up more.


#4

Congrats! I still remember the day I paid my off. Such a relief.

I shared on facebook, but kept it low key. Most people were excited for me or said they were jealous.


#5

Congratulations!

I would share. You’ve got a right to be proud and you might inspire someone to make positive changes in their own lives.

Will anyone respond negatively? Sure. Haters gonna hate. Always have, always will.


#6

Congrats! Share! :slight_smile:


#7

Congrats! You must feel 50 pounds lighter.
I would share. The more we are open about financial success, the more it will spread.


#8

go ahead and share, we feel better just watching you do it. Vicarious Freedom!

I would share but frame it more along the lines of I paid off my debt and here’s how I did it, let me know if you want help with yours!

I shared on fb when I paid mine off in 2015. I didn’t have a single negative comment.
