1 down

I feel wonderful today....Amazing, really...

I just paid off one of our credit cards!!! If you see me around today, I will probably have perma-smile, but can you blame me?

My goal for 2009 is to be debt free by December 31st. This means all credit cards AND the motorcycle that we bought in July. I want our 4 year bike loan paid off in 18 months. Yes, it's a very aggressive goal and I'm aware of that. But it isn't even March yet, and I have one of the cards paid off!! =)

Wanna know a secret?

I'll have card #2 paid off on the 15th. I think I'm going to like the "perma-smile" look!!

    Congratulations on paying off a credit card and possibly paying off another in a few weeks. It is a very good feeling to get them down to a manageable level or paid off. I am very happy for you. You deserve some good karma and it seems like you are working towards that goal.

    Card #1 down and dead. Congratulations, Yip, Yip, Yahoo. Our heartiest and most heartfelt congratulations. Becoming and staying DEBT FREE is life changing. The idea that you own all your stuff instead of your stuff owning you is so liberating.

    Keep up the Goood Woork Girl. The goal of no debt is worth all the present planning and sacrifice, no money thrown away on interest.

    Card #1 down and dead! You deserve a reward! Sooo enjoy the candy -- You have earned it!
