Debt Free!!!!!
Ok so this is a little bit to exciting for me not to share. We are not quite there yet but I got a check in the mail today for $1200 for selling our Piano (I am still a little sad about that)! We are so close to being Debt free! I am fully confident that if we are smart with our Tax return this year we can accomplish this goal! Its hard not to spend the tax return on fun things but if we can get rid of this last little bit of debt it will feel sooo good! Of course we don't have our house paid of but to be Debt free is so rare these days. Most Americans spend more then they make every year! Last year I read the book The Total Money Makeover and it totally changed my outlook on money! I have not perfected the system but we are working on making it work for our family! Its a great book and a great system for making your life more financially secure! Its not about making money but about using the money you make wisely! You should totally check it out!
Anyway I was so excited when I got the mail today and the feeling of being that much closer to a goal is very very fun!


  1. Congrats! Are you going to call Dave on a Friday and yell?

    We've been debt free for almost 3 years now, and love how much more our life improves with each year! We are working on the house now and it is a daunting task but we hope to be able to buy house of our dreams with when we are done!

    Anyway, good job. We know it's hard work, but so worth it.

  2. Lots of exclamation points!!! I LOVE it! We actually read that book as well and it really opened our eyes to how we manage our money. Life isn't about money, but life can be a little easier if money is used the right way. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Congratulations!!! That's SO awesome! I should check out that book!
