Yeah for Progress!!

I paid off my small ( $1800) student loan balance. Its all gone!!! I celebrated by buying myself a wool/cashmere Anne Klein coat and some leather/cashmere lined gloves from Macys.

Total cost for both $120.00!!!

My next thing to pay off is a $4800 loan. I am giving myself to the end of April to have it paid off. I am thinking that I might celebrate that accomplishment with a new bedroom set and some curtains.

Paying debt off is fun if you celebrate every milestone!

Do you reward yourself once you reach a goal? If so, how?

until next time, think prosperous thoughts

You're doing great.

I wish I was Young, Black and Prosperous. Right now I am shooting for Middle Aged, Black and Prosperous. We'll see how that works out. :)

Congrats on your latest achievement!

As I paid down my debt I did reward myself. Sometimes it was a dinner or clothes or ipod. I don't recall spending more than $200 on the reward.

Good Luck

Wow! Great job!

By faith I see myself where you are, paying off the last piece of some debt in my life.

I guess once I pay off my remaining student loan (& auto loan I'm about to add) I will go on a nice vacation or buy myself a Chanel bag or something. Basically as a: look what I can do now without this debt. But that will take some time for savings. So no immediate rewards for me!
