Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: September 2014 Check-in

It’s time to check in on our debt payments and savings goals again. If you’re joining us for the first time, you can read about our decision to publicly keep track of our debt here.

Pull up those balances!

Logan’s paying off a Citi Card, which currently has an APR of 19.99 percent, and a minimum monthly payment of $47.

(Still working on it!)

I’m paying off a private graduate student loan currently serviced by Discover. The interest rate on this loan is 2 percent, and the minimum monthly payment is $147. The original balance on this loan was $22,377.

Aug. 2014 Balance: $13,250.40
Sept. 2014 Balance: $13,108.07

Vacation Savings
Aug. 2014 Balance: $0
Sept. 2014 Balance: $200

I spent the majority of this during my vacation last week, and will be starting this up again next month.

 

If you pay off one of your debts or reach a savings goal, email me your mailing address and I’ll mail you a note to congratulate you (the notes, they will come!).
