    That's great congrats! My goal is to also pay down credit cards this year and to be able to put serious money away for our future and to move forward.

    Now that's a very very good brag. I think you are well on your way to becoming debt free.

    Congrats! I'm sure you'll be done with the other debts in no time, now that you can apply what you were paying towards your cars and other monthly minimums to them!

    I remember how it felt when I paid off my last balance-carrying card. There really is nothing to compare to the feeling of being bad-debt free.

    Have hubby check out places like repodepo.ca and other reputable auctioneers - paying a mechanic to come look at what you're interested in bidding on will save you incredible amounts of money if you go that route (always get a UVIP, of course!).

    That's what its all about. Finding ways to spend less. Pay off debt. But still get to treat yourself. Couponing can do all of that. It takes time and patience but so well worth it. You are doing amazing. Look how far you have come already

    There is no better feeling than paying yourself versus paying somebody else. WTG!

    wow!! way to go!!! what an accomplishment!!! Do you ever what Until Debt do us part? I love that show. Do the jars as Gail suggests. Tell your husband to save for his truck. Find one that you can afford. The insurance is a killer with the big engines in some trucks. He better call and ask how much the insurance is going to go up. He may need to wait until your other 2 credit cards are paid off. If your cars are working well don't buy a truck. Plan your purchases as Gail says.
