We are working with my full time job paycheck and my husband's ssdi check for the last 3 years. Before that my dh had some temp jobs with the state and then did some counseling for about a year before he became permanently disabled. We got rid of the credit cards early, knocked off the 2nd mortgage, paid off two cars and still managed to fix stuff as it broke without going into debt.
We are nearly done with baby step two (yes, it took forever to do it). We paid off my car with our tax refund this past Feb, but still have a hospital ER bill ($75 a month no interest) that we have about $2,000.00 left on).
Our snowball is up to about $1,100.00 a month and for the last year we've been fixing stuff on the house so that we could sell it and move back to OKC (from Guthrie).
We have a contract on our house and barring problems with inspections and everything that goes with buying and selling a home, we'll be back in OKC at the end of the month.
So I want to encourage EVERYONE to stick with it. It can be done.

Thsnk you both. It has been such a long road and like everyone else, there is so much more that I haven't gone into that we have been through.
I want to encourage EVERYONE reading this forum to just keep working at it. You'll make over that hill.

Congratulations! Do you have a job to go to when you make the move or is it a totally start over thing? Wishing you the best of luckBank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

Oh we are just moving from Guthrie, OK back to OKC. I get to telework so I work from home all but one day a month. I've been a teleworker for 4 years now and it helped so much with saving on gas for the car! God has been so good to us!
We are hoping to close this coming Monday. Praying everything comes together the way it should.
Thanks for asking.
