I did it yesterday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We have had the money in our money market account to do it for awhile, but for some reason I was afraid to use it to pay off our CC.<br><br>
I know it was stupid financially to have the money and not pay off the CC and to pay interest on the CC. BUT I WAS SCARED to not have the money in my account. Does that make any sense? It was ~$4,000.<br><br>
I am so happy I did it.

woo-hoo! That must be such a relief! Now, the key is getting rid of the cards so you don't wind up with that balance again in the near future <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> (Like, buying sock yarn or sumthin'.....:LOL)

WOOHOO! That's great to hear! On Dave Ramsey's radio show, you'll often hear people doing "plasectomies" on the air - sometimes a shredder, scissors, or a blender.<br><br>
I cut up mine last one last summer and sent the pieces back to Citibank!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
How much debt do you have left to go?

Just the car (~$4000) and the mortgage. I feel like we are in a pretty good place. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
