Sunday, December 13, 2009 finally happened...

I couldn't sleep. I sat down and wrote out the bills. Within this month, just as our goal stated, we paid off the FINAL credit card, but we also paid off my car! Which means we own both vehicles. We are debt free from all credit cards and car payments. We still have a home equity...that is the next goal for us! We also are saving to have 6 months of expenses saved up. We have 3 months now. I am still working LOTS of odd jobs to have extra money. I am pet sitting, teaching a class on couponingand any other odd job I can find. My husband is picking up some side jobs too.

I am kinda in shock! This has been an on going process for 8 years. During those 8 years, we had lots of set backs and thought we would never make it to this day!!! My husband broke his leg, has been laid off a few times and I have had dental work, college bills and we both have been trying to give our kids a good, happy life. My husband continues to look for a job. I have no idea what the future holds for our family, but it's by God's grace that we are finally feeling free from our heavy debt load!!!

Also, we are ready for Christmas...and no credit card was used in the process!!

Stay Frugal Everyone!!!

I will write more later..I am tired...but I feel so good!!!!

Yahoo! Congratulations! It's a long process but being debt-free (except mortgage) is such a relief. Enjoy the holidays without that stress!
