UPDATE: July 2020 New header because we have no credit card debt thanks to my dear mother-in-law, who passed away two years ago. We used $8,000 of the money she left my husband to pay off the credit card debt. I paid off my Honda Civic in 60 months instead of 72, and our mortgage is at $31,900. We are paying an extra $135 each month anticipating it being paid in full by December 2026. We are actually building an emergency fund, and putting some money into a retirement savings. Upward and onward!
UPDATE: August 2014. I’ve re-created the header for this blog. I am beginning to doubt that we will ever get out of debt again, so I decided to just face it and accept that we will never get out of debt again.
However, I will continue struggling with all my might!!
In November 2006 we were debt-free (only our mortgage of $53K) and then it all came crashing in on us. Thankfully, we had credit cards to help us through the hard times. We were debt-free before; we can do it again.
