You aren't following or I'm not being clear (probably the later). I'm not comfortable disclosing my income to you, Mr. Stranger on the Internets, but it's enough. The only way for you to understand, I guess, would be if you saw my projected budget spreadsheets, and I'm definitely not comfortable with thatIt's all going to work out. My math is fine.That would be Ms. Stranger... ;-)I just didn't see that the numbers added up the way that they were being described, but if you're comfortable with the figures, that's what's important.Based on what I understand from your description of the interest rate and timeframe, I do want to provide a couple of different interest cost scenarios. The assumptions may not actually fit your scenario, but I wanted to show you the difference it can make in the interest paid by choosing which loan to pay off first.Assumptions:CC 1: $10k at 7.9% interest with a $100/month minimum paymentLoan 1: $10k at 12% interest with a $200/month minimum paymentMonthly amount available for debt payoff:Feb 14 - May 14 $1500Jun 14 - Jul 14 $1000Aug 14 - Sep 14 $1500Oct 14 and on $500Scenario 1 - pay $200/month minimum on Loan 1 until CC 1 paid off- CC 1 paid off in Jan, 2015; interest cost is $325- Loan 1 paid off in Aug, 2016; interest cost is $1986- Total interest paid is $2311Scenario 2 - pay $100/month minimum on CC 1 until Loan 1 paid off- CC 1 paid off in Jul, 2016; interest cost is $1273- Loan 1 paid off in Oct, 2013; interest cost is $456- Total interest paid is $1729Scenario 2 saves $582 in interest compared to Scenario 1.AJ
