We're getting there!

Today, we reached a milestone.
 
I came home from working, and Hubby asked me to see what he had written down. It was a list of the bills that he had paid.
Added to the list of bills I had paid off Friday.
 
We hugged and cried together.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We are CONSUMER DEBT FREE!!!!!!
 
 
 
 
Wow, does that feel good to say.
 
We're not done yet, but we are making progress.
In 2008, we were approximately $60,000 in debt.
Today, that total is approximately $15,000.
 
We've paid off two vehicle loans.
We've paid off three extremely large (for us) credit card balances.
We've paid off two store credit cards.
We pay our bills monthly, and on time.
We have money in our savings accounts.
We are setting some money aside for retirement and our children's post-secondary educations.
We are saving for a down payment for our forever home.
 
What a great day.
Thanks to all of you who are sharing in our success.
