janna121215 : Woohoo, getting so close! Cannot wait to be there.
abeeinlove : That is fabulous about paying off your student loans, congrats! Hopefully you’ll be able to pay down the medical debt soon enough. It’s crazy how much of an impact an unexpected or other medical situation can have – we’ve been there, so I get it. Hang in there!
MrsWiggles : That’s great that you’re down to $5k! Getting close!
AORiver15 : The dreaded student loans… it’s felt like forever in paying them down. That’s great that you are conservative with your finances and took a lesser mortgage – I know plenty of people who opted to max out their mortgage and have since regretted it.
Jewelieee : That is AMAZING, congratulations! Yep, we have a FSA that we use each year to cover our anticipated medical costs. There have been a few times where we’ve had higher than expected costs to cover though. Those plans are such great options!
jimonabee89 : That’s so exciting – you’re * thiiiiissss * close also! Great work!! I feel ya – finances can be a touchy subject. We just don’t have that many people who can relate to owing student loans, so the celebratory factor is sort of underwhelming on their end haha. I try to be very open about finances since sharing our experiences can help others to prevent or get through similar scenarios.
hazelbee : That is great! Another persion mentioned that UK loans are work-related – does interest accrue on those amounts? Very cool that you’re almost done!
mrscross1020 : Ooh, those must be some fancy cars! It’ll feel great when you get those loans paid off. Do you think you would make the same purchases again? I’m curious because cars are a weak area of mine momentarily haha.
bellabelles : That’s wonderful! I’m at the point where the debt reduction + wealth accumulation totally feels like a game – it’s a challenge. I was speaking with someone recently who was disappointed (in a sense) that they had paid off their student loans because now they had to find something new to focus on haha. Can’t wait to be in the position where I’m looking for a new challenge to focus my attention on – maybe learning more about investing? Hmmmm…
mrspuppylove : Thats ideal, right there – good for you! It’ll feel great to get rid of that mortgage!
fourtylove : That’s great that you’re paying down the loan quickly! I’ve heard adopting can be expensive… do you mind my asking what the costs are related to and what the ballpark range is? Would these be an international adoption?
