Paying It Off!

It's hard living life, having kids, and still attempting to pay off debt. It is seriously tempting to just say "screw it!" and buy things on credit that we want and live a nice plush life.

But, all things considered, our life is pretty nice! We get things we need, have a few extras, and since we are willing to hold out for a deal, we can get great things that we want when the time is right. We are blessed to live in a great house, have an awesome backyard for entertaining, and don't worry about where our grocery money will come from. And it helps that I am a little bit on the penny pincher side.

As often as I have unnecessary freakouts about money... I am happy to annouce that Dustin and I hit our first milestone in our debt payoff plan.... we have paid off over $10,000 worth of debt since 1/1/2009!!! So, when I am worried that all of the weeks with money being a little bit tight and trying to figure out why this doesn't seem to be working... wondering if I need to go back to work and do something different... Obviously we haven't completely screwed up!
