February 2012

I've rechecked my balances and ran the numbers using and the results are in! In 19 months I'll be making my final credit card and mortgage payment in the same month!!!!! I'll be debt free!

Since I began paying down debt (and not making any more) in February 2009 it will have taken me three years to accomplish. We've given up some luxuries to make this happen; dish tv, games, movies, books, cutting back on groceries, selling things. We could go farther and go bare-bones on the groceries but it wouldn't pull back the payoff date by more than a month possibly. This is what I consider a sustainable lifestyle, not a hardship and getting out of debt IS SO WORTH IT!
