    As of today I owe $0...............well except the mtg on one of the houses.


    I have been dragging that ball and chain of debt around since college. Worked out a few things financially over the last few months, had a couple investments payoff better then expected. Paid off all the CC's and everything else today!


    Feels good :cool:



    Visa and Mastercard- It's been a fun ride and thanks for all your help over the years but.............. :flipoff2:

    Don't forget to save for the tax bill on those investments.

    Cool man! Getting out of debt is great, even though it's only money it has a definite emotional effect on you also, and relieving yourself of that is always helpful.

    Now simply take what you were paying to the CCs and send it to me.. :D

    I know and like the feeling. Only things we have are a piddly student loan of my wife's and the mortgage.

    Good job, congratulations!

    Congrats!

    I cut up two cards last week and have two more to go. I have had it with the blood suckers and spent the last year getting things under control. For the first time in almost 2 years I can see the light of day but still have work to do.

    It wasn't the interest ( 2.9%) on the cards that was killing me, it was all the fawking payments. I was shelling out almost $1k a month on payments for s*** that I owed on.

    So now, it's like I just got a huge raise in spending money.

    Now I find myself surfing the web looking for a boat :rolleyes: Gotta enjoy life I guess. :D

    Congratulations. I"m down to just the mortgage and the student loan. Not bad for me.

    The biggest thing for me was paying off the trucks. No car payment helps a LOT.

    Congrats!!

    I'm prolly 2-3 months away from being debt free, cept home mortgage.
    CCs are paid, just have a few months of car payments on the wife 4runner and one of her old medical bills.

    If I keep payin the way I have, the house will be paid for in 4 years and 11 months. Not that I've been counting.
