|The sallie mae student loans are paid off now, feels so good. The federal student loans can wait, they are low 3.2% so I will invest instead. The cc up there are 0% rooms to go and best buy so just paying a bit each month and will be paid off before 0% goes away, no rush, could pay off anytime. Bought my first stock this month, it's super fun, my new obsession. I only have match up to 3% with employer at 100% and then 50% up to 4% so that's what I am putting in right now. $400/month also goes to my Roth IRA. Had full emergency fund but used half to pay sallie mae. The other $6600 is owed to father-in-law who funded down payment on house a year and half ago. Working on that too. Plan now is to save enough to put equity in house so that we can refinance our 5/1 ARM at 6.1% to a fixed 15 yr while rates are low. Thinking about increasing contribution to 401k but am saving overall very well. Really want to learn more about stocks. Need to have the pool and deck re-done badly, thinking about it this winter? Smaller bonus coming in november, so many things to do with it but at least no big debt concern anymore. Time to start compounding interest everywhere. Need to open college fund for kids.

2/28/15 sure would be nice to still have an employer match on 401k, haven't had that since 2010 probably...|
