Yay! Progress!

Visa $12,250 @ 1.9% until N/A
Discover $12,350 @ 0% until 6/18/21
Car loan now $0.00. (This was never in our CC debt figures, but since it was at 7% we prioritized it.)

5 cards between BOA, Chase, and Citi: $0.00

I would just like to point out that in the first 10.5 months after your 1/1/19 post, you cut your credit card debt from your original $50.6k to $42.3k - an impressive 16.4% But in the 7 months since then, you have cut the credit card debt to $24.6k - less than half of the original total, and a further 35.0% reduction. Less time and accelerated progress - your snowball is turning into an avalanche.

And that doesn't even count the car loan that you also paid off, and the acceleration that being able to put the prior car payment toward the credit card debt will add.

Good job!
