    Talking No debt but the house!

    Hooray for tax returns! I got mine yesterday and put it in the bank. This morning I went on line and cleared up my last debt!!!! I paid $2400 on my property taxes and that pays me all of last year and halfway through this year.

    My mom and dad will not accept more than $50 a month towards the help they gave me for my legal bills during the custody case, and that does not have interest, so I am just considering it a monthly payment and taking it from my child support (sporadic as it may be).

    With the rest of my tax return I have topped up my emergency fund to $1000 and I will have $500 to put towards Disneyworld.

    It took me five years to reach this goal, but now I am debt-free except the house and I am never going back to a life that I can't afford!

    Way to go! Keep up the good work.


    How much we enjoy what we have is more important than how much we have. Life is full of people who have more than they know what to do with, but cannot be content. It is the capacity to enjoy life that brings contentment.---Unknown
