Another Mustchian With No Student Loan Debt!
« on: June 09, 2015, 09:40:44 AM »
Just cleared this morning! 

It was only $182 a month but over the next 10 years until FIRE, it will all add up!

Yes, I know the rates were low but being debt free is mentally satisfying for me.  And the last bit was only $3600.

Woohoo! I bet it feels so good to have it gone. I can't wait until my husbands are paid off but we are not close yet. Good for you!

Congratulations!! I, too, sent in my last student loan payment today. Paid off about $24,000 in loans over the past 3 years, although the majority of that was paid off in the past year when I finally got serious. Kind of wish I can travel back in time with my current knowledge because then I could have erased my debt a year ago.

Fantastic! Congratulations to all three of you! Looking forward to the day when we have my wife's student loan paid off.

Congratulations ! I applaud you for not letting the low rates/payments take your focus off your debt-free goals. It takes discipline. Enjoy your freedom.

Thanks!  I'm just the type who hates seeing ANY debt, so I'm glad it's all gone.

Congrats!!  What an amazing feeling!  Glad I'm not the only one planning to pay off sub-3% student loans early.
