I just wanted to put up a quick post before I get off to work today. I made a payment on Monday and my student loan balance fell to $5,692!!! I am in the $5,000s. I originally thought that by the end of December I would only get the balance down to $5,600, but by the end of November I made it! My next payment is not due until February of 2023.
I still have another $492 budgeted for an end of December payment!! My goal, now, is to get this thing paid down into the $4,000s before the new year. I will have to scrimp, save and cut back on Christmas, but I will do it. If this all works out, then that will be less money that I have to pull out of savings at the end of January to pay it off.
Happy Holidays everyone!!
