    I am letting my wife make those decisions - but a stash to update the car, pad our retirement accounts, maybe a trip to someplace warm in the middle of the winter and a short list of little things we have been putting off during the great recession.

    I'm hoping to be debt-free, except for the mortgage by October 1 after BILs house is sold. And I'm projecting that by 2018, or 2019 at the latest, DH and I will be able to find a house in Vermont at a price that will enable us to put the mortgage to rest.

    Yes, life is good when those chains are broken! Never understood the meaning of giving away your future until I became heavily in debt. Good for you for reclaiming it!
    I thought of the Dave Ramsey Scream - but mostly thought of Simple Living It is not like I can share it with a co-worker (don't want to seem like I am bragging), but I knew members of the SLF would understand my excitement!

    Oh, that is so true - we have a big family vacation planned to Disneyland with the kid's and their families. DW and I share the same birthday and will be turning 60 - so it is kinda big deal, but I told dw it wasn't worth going in debt over and she agreed.

    Vacation will be paid for before we hit the road.

    Congratulations! Breathing must be at least a little easier today.

    It's good to see one individual getting to debt-free, when the national totals on household debt keep on going up.
