4 months into new job - $12.5k less debt!
« on: May 30, 2015, 08:43:42 AM »
Sorry for a gloating post, I'm really excited!

I've managed to get myself into horrendous amounts of debt in the past several years and am just now rectifying everything. With a job that I started at the beginning of February, in addition to paying additional minimum payments for other things, I've reduced my debt load by $12,500 since then! It's starting to feel like I have actual momentum in paying down money. Hopefully this snowballs and continually increases the payoff of the remaining $60,000 really quickly!

Congrats! The crossover point where your NW goes above zero on the Mint/YNAB graphs is extremely satisfying!
