Thanks to some overtime, an unexpected bonus, and six months of scrimping and saving, I was able to entirely pay off two car loans ahead of schedule. Total indebtedness has been reduced by 22.7%

Furthermore, I have $236 remaining which will be applied to 'Car Loan 1 Payoff' Emergency Fund. When combined with the snowball payments, my target is to have that loan paid off 4th Quarter 2016.

Also, I reduced my mortgage balance by $463.31 during February 2016.

I do believe that calls for a Happy Dance.
