If We Were Having Coffee – Big News


If were having coffee I’d be ready to burst with my news.  I’ll pull you into a hug and say, “Hold onto your hat!”

I’ve shared my goal to get rid of my consumer debt as soon as possible but I don’t really tell you about ML’s finances. Mainly because we have separate accounts and budget differently. But today, today is different!

He found out yesterday that he paid off one of his student loans!

As my debt is going to be gone soon and one of my goals is to help him with his he called in to get a total. The person on the other end told him he’s getting a refund, the letter hasn’t even gone out to tell him he’s conquered that debt. This means that instead of 3 sources of credit to pay off he’s down to 2: a credit card and another student loan.

If we keep up our good behaviour we could be consumer debt free by the end of the year!

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this good news than coffee with you.

How are you? How’s your week been?

  1. Yay! I would say “let’s get cake to celebrate!” and point at the unnecessarily indulgent chocolate mud cake and then say “JUST KIDDING! YOU GOTTA KEEP SAVING WITHOUT SCRIMPING TO PAY OF ALLLL YOUR DEBT” so then we just share a small cupcake 🙂

    1. Chocolate mud cake is amazing! Let’s find the cupcake version 😀
      As ML didn’t realize how close he was to paying it off he overpaid and got a refund for ~$50. He’s decided to use the ‘found’ money to throw himself a pizza party :).
      We figured using the refund would allow us to celebrate but not go crazy.
