2 Christmas presents purchased

November 25th, 2012 at 03:23 pm

DH and I went out today and ran a few errands. We headed to Kohl's as we had a 15% off coupon. He had a leftover gift card from his b-day in Aug so he put that towards a new pair of jeans. I got a sweater and we also purchased a Vera Wang "Princess" perfume set for DD1 for Christmas....it was on sale and we were also able to use the 15% off coupon on that too.

We then headed to Fred Meyer and got DD1 a pair of yoga pants that was on her wish list. We got a terrific deal! Originally $38.00....40% off sale, 20% off employee discount card (from my mom) and an extra 15% off coupon from the paper....ended up paying $16.18....not too bad I say!

3 more payments!

Until the SUV loan is paid off!

New numbers!

I sent $500 to the SUV loan which means we have only 3 more payments until it is paid off! About a year ago, we decided to double up on the payment so we could get it paid off sooner. I am so happy we have been able to keep this up. This means the loan will be paid off in under 3 years.

When DH bought a new car in March, it became even more important to get the SUV loan paid off.

I also sent $1400 to his car loan yesterday which will bring our balance just under $6000.

As soon as my car is paid off, we will be sending at least $500 on his, more if possible.

New info on the SUV loan

November 4th, 2012 at 02:33 pm

We have decided to just continue to pay the $500 we have been paying on the SUV loan and just pay it off in Feb 2013.

This still puts us paying the loan off in under 3 years.

Due to some rumours at DH's work (possible slow down/shut down over Christmas), we think it is best to hang onto the cash and just continue as normal. It would have been nice to start the year off with only 1 debt left, but that's ok....I think we have done pretty good so far.

If I end up getting a good Christmas bonus as I have in the past, we may consider putting that towards the loan. It wouldn't completely pay it off, but it would be close. Our office has gone through some changes this past summer, so we are not sure what to expect as far as a bonus. Hoping it will be the same as last year ($1200), but not going to put the cart before the horse.
