March 2017 Debt UpdateHello, everyone. There is only one week left in March. I hope everyone had a good month. I sure did. In today’s post,  I will be going over my March 2017 debt update. Keep reading to see how I did.


My debt went from $65,071.15 to $64, 207.46. It decreased by $863.69. That’s pretty damn good. That is the largest drop that I’ve ever had. I’m getting close to that $1000 drop per month. I can’t wait

The Numbers

Loans 2 – Down  from $5740 to $5525

Navient – Down from $23,943 to $23,842.10

Nelnet – Down from $34,848.18 to $34,840.36

I case you missed it, I paid off the last of my credit card debt! I’ve had some sort of credit card debt since 2006. It feels good to not owe anyone right now. With the credit card debt gone, my new focus is Loan 2. I was able to pay an extra $200 on it this month. That was great. The debt snowball will allow me to pay this debt off within a few months. I’m still looking for other side hustles and opportunities to make more money.

How is your debt repayment coming along?March 2017 Debt Update


  1. Getting rid of credit card debt is exhilarating, isn’t it! I have one credit card balance but that’s on a zero balance transfer for 12 months, which I can pay off very quickly if I need to so I don’t consider it a balance. When I paid off all credit card debt last year I felt like I’d hit a milestone. It was the last of my high-interest debt. Keep going Jason, it’s been a while since I checked in on your blog and debt reports, you’re doing amazingly well!

    1. Thanks. It feels great to not have any credit card debt. I’m focused on eliminating the student loans now.

  2. This is my first visit to your blog. It looks like you are making great progress.

    A long time back, I was drowning in credit card debt, and I finally dug out of it and have been debt free since.

    It is nice to see that you have paid off your credit cards. That is excellent. Keep up the good work of knocking your debts down!

    Congrats on getting rid of the CC debt! Looks like you’re making progress on the rest of your debt; keep up the great work. 🙂

  4. My debt repayment is going well, but the past year or so I really re-invested into my side hustles which had a HUGE impact on the bottom line. Overall it’s been really good investments and I’m trying to think long-term, but I may be looking for some higher-paying side hustles to help pad the bottom line and balance out re-investing with $ hitting the bottom line.

    1. I hope you find those higher paying side hustles. I’m looking for a couple more myself.

  5. Congrats on such a good month! At the rate you’re going, you’ll be at $1,000 a month in no time! Debt freedom here you come!

    1. Hopefully much sooner than later!
