Really? $.09?

Just went through to see how we did this month. We paid exactly $700 to principle this month. Not too bad, but not as much as I thought we did. I really hate interest. Have I said that before?

Anyway, when I logged into to our accounts, I noticed we owed $.09 on one of the loans. Really? $.09?! I am thinking of mailing them a dime for this loan. It would cost more for the postage than the loan. We are going to end up paying them about $40,000 on $30,000 of loans. They wont let go of $.09? Ridiculous.

I did get excited when I updated our percentage paid. We are getting close to 20%! Woo-hoo! We should reach 20% paid long before our first year trying to get out of debt. Not too bad.

I will be posting an update tomorrow on some opportunities that have arisen where we can make some extra cash.

Hope you are all having a good week!

  2. Everyone but the lenders hate interest! I wonder what the late fee on $.09 would amount to? Ridiculous!

  3. Bills like this are so frustrating! We got hit with a medical bill for .15 a few years ago. I was like, really? Our insurance paid the full bill except for a lousy .15? Why in the world did the doctor's office bill for such a small amount? We went ahead and sent a check in. Sure enough, the doctor's office cashed it. Bills like .09 and .15 and just crazy.

  4. It is really stressful when we have a lot of debts to pay. Especially when it comes to our medical bill. Oh my. I think I'm going to faint.
