You Gotta Celebrate the Little Things!

Day after day, in this journey that seems more snail-like than gazelle-intense, you gotta celebrate the small victories. And today, I'm happy because the Chase #1 has fallen below the $4K mark!!

The account is closed so the only place it can keep going is down.  It's closed because I didn't want to accept a  change in terms so closing the account locked in a 6.99% fixed rate.

Total debt reduction for January was $935.71 which isn't too far off my goal of $12K for the year.  I do need to pick up the pace a little bit.  But January was tight ----then again, which month isn't tight? I'll be content in knowing that I've reached another milestone with the Chase #1 card and keep plugging toward the finish line.


  1. I see some "paid in full" tickers down there and the ones that are crawling along are crawling closer and closer to the finish line (the snail is especially cute.)

  2. Progress is progress!!! I love when a number goes down to a new "milestone" number! Yay you!

  3. A milestone is a milestone and cause for celebration! Nice work. You have a similar annual payoff goal to mine. Gotta keep plugging along!


  4. I agree, progress is still great!
