The First Win

After just nine years and three months, we’ve paid off our first student loan as part of the debt snowball we started back in August, 2008. It took 13 months and almost $1,800 in extra payments to get it done. Check it out:

So, now it’s on to my student loan since that’s the next lowest in principle.

  1. Outstanding! Congrats on knocking off one of your student loans.

  2. Great job! Keep up the good work!

  3. Wooooooo hoooooooooo!!b Congratulations, Jason and Jaime. And thanks for the great example.

  4. Sa-weet! Congratulations!!!

  5. Thanks everyone. Pretty exciting! 🙂

  6. What a feeling of accomplishment you guys must have! I know it must have been lots of hard work and sacrifice.

  7. I’d also like to give a shout out (yeah, I know, I can’t really pull that phrase off) to Susan Whited. She took us through the Good Sense money course while we were waiting for Addison. Pre-pregnancy, I didn’t think courses like that were useful; I knew they’d all say “save more, spend less, don’t charge stuff.” But we both found a lot of value in the course, and I think God’s really blessed us with the stick-to-itiveness that we didn’t have pre-baby.

  8. Congrats!! That’s awesome news and such a great feeling!

  9. I do not know you, but I am proud of you. My wife and I are re-starting the journey of becoming debt-free. I wish you the best of luck in the future.

  10. Super! “Live like no one else, so you can live like no one else.” That first win has got to be such positive reinforcement! Look how your example has spread all the way to St Louis!

  11. Awesome!! Before you know it you will be calling in to Dave Ramsey himself to do your “I’m debt free …yell!!!”
