I didn't really put too much thought into this before starting this post but I do have some things on my mind. As in I'd really like to get this loan off my back before my birthday in October. I hope I can get more shifts so that I can make bigger payments. I need to find another source of income. Not just because of my current situation of lack of shifts but because I want to get myself better established before our big Australia trip and its going to take a lot of funds to get me there.
1) Reduce Student Loan debt to under $2000.
2) First month of Automatic Savings deductions ($100). Monitor to make sure this is completed.
3) Find a way to make an extra $50 this month.
4) Start formulating a list of things I think I will need for Australia. (Backpack, clothing, etc)
Reducing my debt is always my number one goal. Once my debt is gone I can start focusing more on the future instead of being reminded of the past and having it slow me down. This why I am starting to wonder if I should push my debt freedom goal up to my birthday as a gift to myself. I can't imagine a single thing that I would want and appreciate more.
