For the new readers, I’d like to give a quick recap on my debt specifics. As you can see from the info on the side bar, I started this journey with a lot of debt. I still have a lot of debt but I was able to pay off the little ones and then obtain a consolidation through a credit union signature loan. Then my husband moved out on Labor Day weekend and my debt was further reduced by a car loan going with him and the selling of my newer vehicle got rid of my car loan. We divorced on Dec 14, 2012 and I was left with what you see in the debt column. That was my pre-marital debt.
The three debts break down like this:
$13,210 USAA @ 11.9%
$18,110 Bank of America @ 12.9%
$9,844 credit union @ 11%
I have an excellent income that I’m working hard to use more responsibly than I have in the past.
So if you’re new here…welcome! I have a long way to go but the new year has motivated me to get even more focused on being debt free!
