Thanks to MMM, I am paying off the last of my Credit Card debt!
« on: December 16, 2014, 05:52:03 PM »
After paying off credit before and having it creep back up again, I am embracing my pre-mustache shadow, and will be sending in the final payment this week!

So stoked.

Next, looking into selling off the Ford Edge I am making payments on (I know, I know), and buying a used hatchback early next year, after Christmas holidays. I am looking forward to having a lustrous, bristling upper lip someday.

Congratulations.  Both on paying off the credit card debt and the mustache you will start to grow from now on.

Good for you!

Now just watch out for any recurrence of that "credit card debt creep" you mentioned.

Being free of credit card debt is a great way to start the New Year!

Yeah, I am. I swallowed my pride and took the YNAB courses and bought the software. I know that it is just the envelope method, but it's working for me. I now can use my other rewards credit card and pay it off monthly without debt accrual (free Spain trip, here I come!)

Killer!

Next step: using CCs responsibly!  $50 cash back last year from my CC on food/fuel/travel purchases.  Not a penny paid to interest!

Congrats, truxtian!
