I PAID OFF ALL MY STUDENT LOANS!!!!!!
Peanut and I decided recently to go all Dave Ramsey on our student loans (our only debt besides the mortgage) and funnel the money we had earmarked for Roth IRAs into paying them off. Doing so killed a balance of $8,100 and a monthly $225 payment, which is now freed up to attack Peanut's student loans.
We hope to pay his off within the next year, meaning we would only miss two years of Roth contributions. I hope we can do that - his loans are around $18,000 which is a lot of money when one of us won't be working for half the year.
I graduated in May 2010, and my degree is mine, clear and free! Also, I estimated a little high when sending in my pay-off payment, and the student loan servicer now owes me $40. That'll be a check I'd want to frame, except I'm totally going to cash it. :)
