I am so happy to report this. Just today, I have paid off 25% of our consumer debt!!! I'm so thrilled because it takes us one more step in achieving our personal financial goals for 2008!
And, even though it's on day 2 of my cash-only diet, I have had to use our credit cards already – but it was our debit card and it came right out of our bank account (my son needed lunch money and it's easier to load the money online than sending in a check).
So, if you're on this same journey of trying to live debt-free, or just have personal financial goals of your own, I will cheer you on and please do the same for me. It feels great achieving this baby step. I'm excited to keep going!
