Credit Card Freedom Day

We got our state tax refund today. And after work, Jennie and I mailed what will be the last credit card payment we’ll ever make.

We’d hoped to be done by the end of last year, but life happened. There were a lot of things we hadn’t planned for, and even with Jennie and me both working part-time, it took us longer than we thought. But we made it. We’ve been in debt together for longer than we’ve been married, and finally, after something like fourteen years, a big, big part of that debt is gone. (And I put in my two week’s notice at my part-time job the day after I filed the tax returns. Tomorrow I work my last weekend there.)


No more credit card payments. Ever.

In some ways it feels like starting our life together all over again.
