Drum Roll Please…
Second Major Goal Accomplished. I just sent in the payment that will pay-off our mini-van loan. That means that by the end of this week, I will be 1/2 way to my debt-free goal, and I am now the proud of 3 PAID FOR cars. All 3 are in good working condition, with newish tires and they ride great. YAY! I knew that this blog would provide motivation, but not this much. Here is the update from where I have come from April 16 up to August 29.
|Account||April 16th||Paid So Far||08/06/05|
I am sooooo very, very pumped! I have paid off over 50 percent of my debts, and the debts that I now owe are on a zero percent card that is good until December of 2005. So, I am finished with interest payments, FOREVER! This feels awesome. A quick note of encouragement to everyone who will read this: Get started now, and enjoy the ride. There will be many, many, many, ups and downs, and the process will have bumps that you are not expecting (check some of my posts!), but the feeling of not owing these creditors is AWESOME BABY.
Well, I have less than 2 months to SOMEHOW find 5,483.66. I have sold everything I know to sell, I have cut back to the bone, but I know that somehow, some way, I am going to achieve my goals.
Well, thanks to everyone for your support, click on the links on the right side of the page, and come back for more news as it happens. (Oh yeah, if you are in the path of Katrina, our prayers go out to ya’ll)
