Auto Loan Under $6,000!

April 24th, 2013 at 03:09 pm

Our auto loan is now under $6,000!

It is sitting at (as my side bar reflects), $5,765.37!

Loan Originated December 2011 for $14,300...59% paid in 16 months! Hope to have it gone by late Summer or before December 2013.

Auto Repair Payment Curve Ball

April 3rd, 2013 at 11:21 am

My car went in the shop yesterday for a clutch replacement, charging labor only as I supplied all the parts. Got the call that it was ready today and he mentioned he prefers cash or check as he will be charged 3% for the swipe. The shop has some really fair prices and someone I can trust. I had originally planned to put it on my Chase Sapphire card to earn some points as I need to cancel it before August or pay the yearly fee. I also wanted it on there to float the payment as it would not have been due until May 9. I have no problem paying by check, but the EF will be seen below $5,000 until April 26. So going against my previous post, I guess I did touch the EF with all the expenses previously posted. Oh well, at least we have the cash available!
