Our Corolla is Now Officially Ours
Hooray – our 2002 Toyota Corolla is paid off! We got the title in the mail today. I am SO thrilled. I have been doubling up on the payments for the past few months, which enabled us to pay it off six months early. It is such a relief to have one less debt to our name. I love our Corolla too. Other than routine maintenance, oil changes, and one trip to the auto shop to fix a tire (because I hit a curb-oopsie!), we have never had to take it in for fixing in the 4.5 years we have had it. I love this little, reliable car.
Now that the car is paid off, I am hoping to apply that extra money each month to double up on payments for our minivan or my last remaining student loan. My goal is to not have any outstanding debt outside of a mortage payment in maybe 2 years. How freeing would that be? Of course, then we will have to start thinking about Adrianna’s schooling, since we have already decided that she will not be attending the public schools in our district (based on trustworthy recommendations from another mom with school-aged children). *sigh* I guess there is always something that pulls on the pursestrings.
