I am a happy girl today. I have officially paid off my student loans! My final payment isn’t actually due until June, but I decided to look up my payoff amount today and saw that it was small enough to get it out of the way early. Yippee!!! This will be a huge boost to our financial situation, not having that monthly bill any more. It feels like a weight has been lifted. It’s kind of a bummer that I’m not putting my education to good use at the moment, but I’ll get back to my career when the time is right. Right now, I need to focus on my kids, and continue to find new ways to save our family money so I can afford to be home with them until they are all in school!
