Finally starting to grow my stache!
« on: April 19, 2019, 08:53:15 AM »
I've been lurking around MMM for a few years now and I'm finally starting to see the stache come in. We had a lot of debt, $90K, when we started this journey 5 years ago but we continue to move in the right direction. Just wanted to celebrate today because we have been debt free, except for the mortgage, for 1 year and we have already maxed out our HSA for the year! Time to get to work on our IRAs! Thanks everyone for being excellent role models and inspiration!

Congrats!  I'm always happy for people that are able to get to $0 in debt.  Although having $xxx,xxx in the bank is a great accomplishment, I feel that moving from -$xx,xxx to $0 is much more mentally freeing.

Amazing. I have a similar story, and there is nothing like that freedom. Good luck as you move into the positive NW.
