let’s talk money

Follow along as Mr.C & I tackle $43,000 worth of student loans while trying to stay sane + still sock away dough for the future.

Our goals are to:

be frugal, but spend wisely

save for the future, but still pay down our debt

get a handle on our finances,

but not to be so miserly + obsessed that it feels depressing + unrealistically restrictive

to be financially responsible, but still be able to enjoy life

to be able travel, buy new things, and go out without breaking the bank

In addition to the student loan debt we also had to replace our ’98 car in December 2013. We had some money in savings that allowed us pay a good chunk of it in cash so our car loan is $14K.
