Sent in my final car payment!

May 16th, 2014 at 12:13 pm

I spent about 2 hours yesterday figuring out the whole title thing. It's all going to work out as far as me receiving the title then I'll worry about changing insurance the registration etc once the title shows up. I'm not sure what the process is for that but I'll find out soon enough. One step at a time!

My refund from the medical bill still hasn't come in yet so I'm just going to apply that money toward my goal of saving up enough money to pay off the car insurance in full.

I took a few bucks and make a small payment toward our upcoming hotel stay and I was able to make a $20 extra payment toward my student loans which feels pretty gosh darn awesome.

As of Monday my car loan is paid off about a year and a half ahead of schedule and 6 months before even I intended to make it happen.

I should be getting 2 more if not 3 more checks out of this job and then there's the possibility of being picked up for a new project. Either way I just put myself in a fantastic position to be able to make it by longer on my part-time position if it comes to that.

I was also able to set aside of few bucks for myself which is nice. I'm going to plan to do that for the next paycheck as well.

It almost doesn't feel like its anything because I scrapped by and obsessed a little too much about getting to the finish line but I'm sure once the title comes in and I'm changing things to reflect that the vehicle is mine outright it will be a little more real.

If I get picked up for another project soon that would really help me keep up this progress. Either way I am happy to have reached one of my 2014 goals! Hope everyone else is having a lovely Friday.

    This is the first time I have ever responded to anyone or anything online.
    I have read many blogs under the Savings Advice site. I have to congratulate you.
    You feel nothing because you're drained. Paying off debt is mentality exhausting.
    It's a sweet feeling when you get the title in the mail. Think of it as a reward for a job well done.

    Congrats on paying the car off! As far as dealing with insurance, all I had to do was call and tell them to take the creditor off. They did it, no questions asked.

    Nice job getting the car paid off! I know we like driving our paid for cars. It is nice to get that title in the mail, too. Smile
