That is a really SUPER post, Agg! I'm sort of overwhelmed by the quality of the content in all of the posts here. I simply can't respond to each because of my 9-5, side hustle, day-to-day, and this whole mess, but please know that I am trying to digest and take them to heart. I am grateful for the contributions here!

Brief news:
We are doing something in the name of killing debt daily. All of our interest rates crept up this week. It is good to see the credit cards are jumping on board and strengthening our resolve. I looked over the past couple years of statements and the rate has gone up around 0.25% every 2-4 months. Uncool. The 0% remains at zero and I found out it will remain at 0% until August.

I haven't cashed in the savings bonds yet, only because I haven't made it to a brick-and-mortar during open hours. I'll beat the next billing cycle for sure and we're still on track to blast the one balance.

E fund and car sale are a bit complicated at the moment- it will work out and in time I'll have an e-fund number of $750. I'm still not crazy about the idea, but I'll do what I'm told. After all, "I heard it on the internet, lol! :)

One foot in front of the other for now. I feel like we are coming to good decisions and I'm getting really good advice here. Thank you all for welcoming me and for helping out!
