Mwa-ha-ha! THE CAR IS OURS. We made our last (very aggressive) loan payment yesterday, it cleared this morning, and the title will allegedly be in the mail within the month. Our savings account is severely depleted, but it was worth it. Debt is a four-letter word around here, and this investment represented more than a third of the family debt in January of this year. The loan didn't mature until January of 2018, and in the end PNC Bank only took us for less than $400 of interest. The student loan is another matter, but now it has our undivided attention. Eating budget food and being an energy nazi has paid off once again.
I'd still rather have kids, but in this political and economic climate, I am glad we're able to pay this off so quickly. More on that later.
