Infrequent update. . . .

If you're wondering where I've been in the last six months, I picked up another job, which has just about stretched me to the limit. I'm working a LOT but am also making a nice dent in my student loan debt, though I've still got quite a ways to go. Here's where I was the last time I checked in with you all:

Debt Reduction Progress

Second Mortgage Debt: $31,400::::$26,257 84%
Student Loan Debt: $61,762::::$56,387 91%
Primary Mortgage Debt: $167,500::::$158,016 94%

And here's where I'm at now (focusing primarily on student loan debt):
Second Mortgage Debt: $31,400::::$25,888 82%
Student Loan Debt: $61,762::::$51,881 84%
Primary Mortgage Debt: $167,500::::$156,757 94%

Little by little, I'm getting there; and since I picked up a new job in late spring/early summer, hopefully my student loan debt will decrease even quicker over the next year. About 20% of my payments are going to service interest only right now, so that's a bit frustrating, but that number will also decrease as my balance goes down.

I have no idea when I'll have a chance to update again, but will try at least every couple of months. . . .

I hope you're all continuing to survive the recession (that supposedly ended two years ago)!

Keep it up and don't ever lose sight of the day that you'll eventually be able to pay off everything. It's all worth it!

Hi, I've read your blog with great interest, it is nice to see someone work their way through a personal debt nightmare.

In fact in Scotland, the recession is causing grief for many people, unfortunetly many are having to turn to personal bankruptcy in order to manage thier own debts.

Keep up the good, frugal work!
