  • Technically I have $1,000 on a credit card, which is revolving, so I pay it off basically every month.
    I have a $16,000 car, on a 6 year plan, which started 1 year ago.. so I have been paying that off every month.
    My other half has $18,000 in student loans which he has one more year until he has to start paying on, but he does have a plan of $100/month (for now).

  • we have about 700 we own in credit card debt then i have about 5000 in student loans, not paying a sprint bill, and just alot of other random bill i never paid. the credit cards we pay about 50 bucks a month they should all be paid off soon its only 700 so that will be easy but as far as the 5000 in random crap i just dont think i am ever gonna pay it
