it’s been nice knowing you, Sallie Mae

But I think it’s time we parted ways.

Let it be known that on October 3, 2011 at approximately 11:00 post meridian, the Heiselt family of Brooklyn, New York freed themselves from the burden of student loan debt.

There will be no more monthly payments to Sallie Mae. There will be no talk of giving her any tax return money, either. She’s taken all she can get from us and we are done, free and clear, a mere 2 years 3 months after we started paying back the 10 year loans.

I said I didn’t want to be paying this back when Simon was in middle school, and we won’t even be paying it back when he is kindergarten. Hallelujah!

I would say that this calls for a celebration, but it’s late. We can celebrate another time, like maybe on Sunday, when we celebrate my sister’s birthday.* We like to be economical that way. Obviously.

*Just kidding, Abby! Sunday is all yours.

  1. you are the ideal loan borrower for a school’s financial aid office (lower that default rate!)…but a lender’s nightmare! awesome job, lizzie!
