Haven't posted in this thread in a long time, but I had to come by to say... I just paid off our last credit card! We paid off around $60,000 in debt in the last 4 years. It sucked (a LOT at times!) but it's gone now and will NEVER be coming back! Next we are moving on to paying off our minivan. Shouldn't take long at all, thankfully.

Back was a rough week of not being able to post anything here. Some guy broke into my house and stole my laptop. came through the livingroom window took laptop and son's DS and never went anywhere else in the house. Someone was watching over my house, because of the dave ramsey plan i had my emergancy fund in cash. 1100 in the house with emergancy fund and rent money along with my christmas fund. i like to thank AdrianL for helping me recover my password so i could get back in here :)

oh and just so everyone knows i did not break into my emergancy fund to buy a new laptop. Right now I am sharing my son's computer which also wasn't taken. and put the laptop i'm getting on layaway will be mine in 10 weeks just in time for christmas :).

it is ok about the laptop. the loss of peice of mind is what isn't easy to replace. :( I look at it as a test to see if i have the will power to stick to the plan. Though i haven't cut up my creditcard i haven't used it in 3 months and it is a 0 balance. so i need to get on that :D only 10 more payments til i can get the laptop off layaway.

no news is goodnews i hope everyone is doing well.

i feel i'm changing my whole way of thinking. i just can't believe how much my family is into debt. i posted dave's daily quote on my FB today and my aunt said well you can't get a new car without a credit score. well thanks but my plan was to save for a nwer car. the one i have now will probally last for a few more yrs. and i am hoping to have a 20% down for a house sometime next yr.

i live in a very low cost area for housing so don't think the 20% is alot ;)
