February 2017 Debt Update

February 2017 Debt UpdateWhat’s up y’all? Can you believe that today is the last day of February? It’s time for this month’s debt update.

My total debt went from $65,826.26 to $65,071.15. That as a decrease of $755.11. As of today, that is the largest that my debt has ever dropped in one month. I’m ready to have an even bigger drop next month.

The Numbers

Loan 2 – Down from $5750 to $5740

Chase – Down from $1200 to $540

Navient – Down from $24,023 to $23,943

Nelnet – Down from $34,852.91 to $34,848.15

It’s good seeing the debt get smaller. Last month, I set a goal to attack my Chase credit card debt. It worked. If things go how I think they will, the Chase card will be paid off before March is over. I can’t lie, I’m starting to get excited. After that, I will only have student loan debt left! Side hustles have helped me out so much. If you are in debt or you need extra money, you must find a side hustle. There are many side hustles that you do such as selling things on eBay.
