Killed Student Loans!
« on: March 09, 2016, 09:13:04 AM »
We did it... we finally pulled the trigger and KILLED last piece of it yesterday! All of it!... All $75K between my hubbs and I over the last few years.
Thanks to this incredible community of frugal minds that planted this idea of living debt free in our heads.
Something we once thought was impossible became our reality yesterday! And let me tell you - it feels A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!! Absolutely and incredibly AWESOME!!!
Thanks again, Mustashians, for all the advice and inspiration that we found on this forum!
On to the new adventure!.. Yes, mortgage, buckle up - you are next! :)

I can't wait for this feeling!  Congrats, guys!  Posts like these motivate me to cut out more and more and send more to kill the loans.

Congratulations!  I just paid the last of my loans off tonight, and I agree, it feels great.

Excellent job!

We paid off our student loans about two months ago and you literally feel a weight or bind leave.
The good: 27 years old, 1 car, not renting anymore.
The bad: Single income, only about $17k in retirement, and no FI date.
The ugly: 1 year ago I was doing much better but lost all possessions due to mold. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

Congratulations! This is a boost to me since I expect to take out quite a bit if I go to grad school. Hopefully I don't take out too much though.
