At the advice of one of the members, I am reposting my request. I am looking for ideas/guidance on how to get out of debt. Also, what time frame are we looking here? Pertinent info: we make ~$110 000 annually, before taxes. We have one child, 16 months old (Yes, we've started a college fund! Plus she has savings account) My car has 20 payments left of 338.39, at 5.9% interest. His car is paid off, but is 12 years old, 230 000 miles. Mortgage on house is 159 200 at 7.5 %.
