Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: November 2013 Check-In


The Thanksgiving holiday passed us by and we forgot to do a November check-in. So here it is!

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.

OK! Let’s throw some money at our problems.

Logan’s paying off a Barclay Card, which currently has an APR of 22.24 percent, and a minimum monthly payment of $47.
September 2013 Balance: $385.19
October 2013 Balance: PAID OFF

Hooray! Go Logan! It’s the second card Logan has paid off since we started doing this.

The next card Logan is paying off is a Citi Card, which currently has an APR of 19.99 percent, and a minimum monthly payment of $83.11. The balance on the card is $3,135.75.

I’m paying off one of my Sallie Mae Private Student Loans, with a current interest rate of 4.5 percent, and a minimum monthly payment of $55.
October 2013 Balance: $378.69
November 2013 Balance: $270.24

September 2013 Vacation Savings: $150.00
October 2013 Vacation Savings: $0 (Spent on a ticket home for the holidays). I’ll restart in January!

Remember, if you pay off one of your debts, email me your address and I’ll mail you a note to congratulate you.
