So Brynt and I are working hard to pay off all of our debt. We don’t have that much, but we don’t want ANY. Quite a bit of it is the baby bill. Babies are expensive, babies are especially expensive if your student insurance has crazy high premiums and pays for basically nothing. Grrr, what a rip off but oh well, we are dealing with it.
Last month we payed of the credit card. This week we have payed off the hospital bill (YAY) and a few other smaller medical bills. It was a lot of money, and I am so glad we don’t have to worry about it any more. It gives me so much motivation to keep going and do better with money.
We want to have everything payed off, and then go on a vacation. After the vacation, time to save for a house! obviously we will have to take out a mortgage for a house but we want to have a BIG down payment. And then work hard to pay off the house too!
This “pay it off now” attitude takes some life style adjustments, but its worth it. Brynt and I are 23, if we can train ourselves to make wise money choices now, and start working towards our financial goals early, there is a bright future ahead.
