Hi Walstib! What a great update! Congratulations, you have hit your first Happy Dance post!! You are always welcome to start a new thread; unlike other forums, people commonly start new ones rather than continuing these for a long time. And if you start a new thread, you have the benefit of being able to put "Happy Dance!" in the subject. Everyone here knows what that is and will thus be more inclined to read it.

So let's see where you have been and where you are today (the below table uses the < p r e> and < / p r e > formatting marks, without the spaces):

1/21/2019  2/15/2019

#2 $ 5,630.63 at 17.49% $ 5,332.05

#4 $17,697.63 at 13.99% $17,355.48
#5 $14,838.00 at 0% $14,410.92
Total $50,786.59 $48,176.27
Difference $ 2,610.32

Holy moly, would you look at that? You've paid off more than $2,000 of your debt!! That's amazing! I recall you saying that $1,000 is a HUGE amount of money, but yet here you are, having well over doubled it. That's really freaking awesome! Fantastic job! And more than that, you're quietly working away at a BUDGET??? Sweet!!!

ThyPeace, delighted, and looking forward to that car sale. Heck, that'll knock off Card #2 all by itself!
