Hmm, Part 2

January 20th, 2016 at 03:22 am

When I wrote Hmm Part 1, I really wasn't planning on pulling the trigger yet.

But, I thought about it all day, and I couldn't think of a good reason not to pay it off. It would make me happy, and life is about the pursuit of happiness, right?

So tonight I transferred $8,800 from savings to my car loan, bringing the loan balance down to $260.13. Wells Fargo's website is kind enough to show the loan payoff balance every day. Using their info, I transferred an additional $38.32 from checking, bringing the balance down to $221.81. My regular payment of $248.65 will happen automatically tomorrow. After it posts, my balance should be $0.00.

Yay, it feels good. Smile

Now to rebuild savings.

    Well! How exciting!! Now to get moving and posting about your emergency fund. I look forward to hearing about that.

    Yay! I don't blame you; I probably would have done the same. Now you can use that money to rebuild your EF and you'll pay no more interest on that debt. Congrats!

    How wonderful it feels to write Paid in Full on the car loan documents. I hope you call your insurer to let them know there is no longer an outstanding balance. Does it cause a modest reduction in premium? You are part of a small minority who have no outstanding sum owed on their vehicle.
