April Debt Reduction Progress: The Force Is Strong With This One

Time Flies!  Yada Yada.

For the last 9 months I’ve been recalibrating life to my new standard.

I’ll update on all of these topics, but today I wanted to give a debt reduction update.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since my last update in August:

Parent PLUS debt down: $5,225.22
Mortgage lowered:  $6,415.57
Overall debt reduction:  $11,640.79

If you’ve been reading along, this isn’t exactly the progress I’d been dreaming of.  Nothing is as I expected it would be when I wrote that post due to the events of last summer.  And that’s ok!  Life is unpredictable.  I decided to go into a sort of “deer in the headlights” mode.  Not quite stormcloud mode, as I still made extra payments toward my debt.  However, I held onto bonuses and extra money for fear of the unknown as I went through my divorce.  That decision may or may not have bit me in the ass, but that’s an analysis for another day.

I’m feeling a lot less scared of my financial future now.  I’m back on my feet and forward-facing.  And now that I’m back on my path to eliminating this debt, I’m ready to restore accountability and bring you along for the ride.

Are you ready?  I am.  Leggo!
