    We have our mortgage.

    I am curious to know why people with multiple debts (ie: credit card, car loan, personal loan etc) don't speak to a financial institution about consolidating the debt so they only have one debt to pay. I'm not being rude, I just wonder if people actually know its an option in some cases.

    We've looked into consolidating but were knocked back due to me not currently working :-( Once I start getting PPL it will all be going towards debt which will knock out at least 2 of the debts :-)

    Apart from hecs, none. However all the emergency fund, ds education fund and savings are gone now too, used those to pay legal fees. Oh the joy.

    Paying off my credit card ($3000) which I no longer use. Dropped the limit by $1000k in a month

    And I have about $13000 in HECS but I'm just going to let the government deal with that (through my working).

    Pretty happy as the CC will be done by Christmas. We have a fair bit in savings but I don't want to put it all in the CC now because we may need it in a few months for fertility treatment.

    Just mortgage - 2 land loans $120k.

    Currently owe my dad $750 which wont take long to pay back, and we owe our conveyancer $2500 as we subdivided.

    Once those 2 are paid off its just the mortgage!
