Small Start to Student Loan Project

As one of our goals for 2012, we’d like to pay down the student loan principal by at least $2,000 this year (in addition to our regular monthly payments). I’ll be using any after tax revenue generated from My Financial Reviews to reach this goal.

About a month has passed by and I wanted to share our progress. Being a new site I didn’t expect money to just fall from the sky, so I’m happy to announce that an extra $85 is scheduled for payment on the loan. It’s a small start for sure, but it’s a start.
