We are halfway there with paying off our cc debt! We would have been closer to our goal but both the oven and dishwasher broke the same week and we had to buy replacements. And then the car needed to be repaired after that. We got our tax refund and applied all of it directly towards the cc debt, and have been chipping away at it slowly. Barring unforseen circumstances, we should have it paid off by the end of summer.

That's great. I hope nothing major comes up so you can reach your goal of paying off the debt by the end of the summer.

Woo-hoo! We paid 3/4 of ours down with our income tax return, so we're getting there slowly.
