and i want to mention that i am someone who is normally very frugal and has been my whole life.

i wasnt wasting 500-1000 a more a month on groceries or going out to eat or buying electronics etc. my main budget has basically stayed the same .

i know alot of time when people are already frugal you see a stuff getting paid down and think wow what did they waste money on before hand.

In the past 3 years since i started working again- and just the past two years more than my 1 weekend a month job - we had some car issues etc extra money we made went to .

in 2009 we bought and paid off a 9,000 car

in the first half of 2010 we paid off a 2007 car so we could hand it down to my son because it was time for my dh to get a new one ( his work gives him a transportation allowance expects a car under 4 years old- long story )

now i am able to put my extra money to the bills that ran up when i was too sick to work .
yeah !!

I never ONCE think that about anyone here. It is what it is and I have no right to question what anybody did because... I know this is hard to believe... I'm not perfect. :D

LOL i was just saying that because on a thread a few weeks back i posted about Daves radio show a few of us were talking about how some get debt free so quickly because they mismanaged so much every month before they started daves plan -or had 3 houses and sold 2 eyc
and we liked/ identified more with the stories where people actually had to do more than just not blow money - they had to work extra- give stuff up most consider normal things to do and had some struggles etc like the majority here do :)

Boom! You go girl!

Look at that list that Russ posted above. That is impressive!

Keep the momentum and beat those Visas down!

We're happy for you, proud of you, and can't wait for the next update!

I am first impressed!! I don't think you were being un-frugal before. I think you just really REALLY tightened the belt now and increased your income.

I am also jealous!! At most I get mine down about $500 a month and sometimes less than that.
