We paid off our credit cards; the last check is in the mail! In total, we've paid off $13,400 since October. I can't believe we actually did it, but it's done, and slightly ahead of schedule too, due to an unexpected inheritance. We used some of the inheritance to pay off the last $3,000, but we were on track and could have had that done by the end of summer, so even though I kind of feel like that was "cheating," I'm just glad it's DONE.<br><br>
Never again, I hope!<br><br>
Now we're going to focus on saving up for a car (we're both driving 12-year old cars, and they won't last forever) and putting some extra money toward our HELOC every month.
