At that time, between the two of us, we owed 72 thousand dollars in credit card debt (all but 14 thousand was my partner’s debt). We got more serious about it last summer. As of today, we are now down to 38.4 thousand in credit card debt. It’s still a lot, but that is a lot to have paid off in two years. All but about 10 thousand of that has been paid off since last July.
We still have about 40 thousand in student loans from my partner and more than that from me. And, we owe more on our house than it is worth, but the size of the hole is decreasing.
I’m hoping that another year will be enough to pay off the rest of the credit cards, but that may be too lofty of a goal. We’ll see.
