Consolidating My Student Loans is Saving Me $110 per Month!

debt.jpgI got my student loan consolidation verification forms in the mail yesterday, and I am officially saving myself $110 per month on my loans.  Yay!!!  :D

This means I will be able to pay off the rest of my credit card debt within the next 6 months or so.  I’m so psyched about having ZERO credit card debt!  It seemed like an impossible task just a year ago, but I’ve kicked ass in the last 9 months and paid off $7,500 in non-student loan debt.

Once I’m done with my credit card debt, I am going to build up a small emergency savings fund.  After that, I am throwing everything I have at my student loans.  I am finally starting to feel like I have everything under control regarding my finances.

I found this great Debt Reduction Calculator at the Vertex42 site.  This spreadsheet gives you an excellent idea of your debt payments, including estimated pay off dates for every account!

    Loan consolidation programs are a way to make life a little easier. There is no doubt that if you have to live off of a credit card, then you are paying much more than you need. The extortionate rates of credit cards, and the low monthly payments required, make credit cards one of the worst options to get by. Having one payment to deal with can make life much more easier, though sometimes it can cause more problems. Some people prefer to have several bills, then that way they can manage them more easily, than trying to have to get a larger amount of money in one go, to pay the student loan consolidation company.’,.-
