Pretty darn excited right now! Just made my last credit card payment 2 full months before my final deadline...now onto the next debt - paying off the wedding!

very excited - I have managed to continue to pay cash for things and when I have had to pay by credit card I am able to pay it back by the little savings that I save each month, helping me to not go into further debt. Next week I will get paid and it should be my final payment on my credit cards!!

Another Friday & another payday! Just made another payments and I now have a balance of $1100 in credit card debt. I can't believe that just a few short months ago when I started this goal I had almost $5000 in debt. with some determination and continued focus I am almost out of cc debt and I can move on to my other debts.

I got paid today and made another payment to my credit cards! I have only $2000 left of cc debt so next payment I will be in the 1's...VERY exciting :) definitely starting to see the effort paying off

Quickly paying down this debt!! so exciting :) I charged a few things but had ways to cover those charges so that I wasn't adding to the balance. Only added some charges for an upcoming trip I am taking with my Mom but they are not big enough that I will not meet my goal.

Tomorrow is pay day- and it has felt like forever until I got paid last. I am chomping at the bit to make a payment as soon as I get the money so I can keep moving towards the end of my credit card debt. Now that I am seeing major progress from sticking to my last month’s goals I am gaining momentum and starting to feel slightly empowered. I just want to keep going!

I still haven’t charged anything except I got the monthly finance charge on the card (grrrr…) but that is incentive for me to keep going so that I don’t get charged anymore or have that debt to pay. I finished my first month of my other goal of paying cash for everything and my debt went significantly down this month. I am looking forward to getting paid in the next few days so I can make another large payment, hopefully I will be credit card debt free by my birthday in September rather than by year end.

I haven't really charged anything except for one automatic quarterly subscription and a big expense on items for the boat, but I was able to scrape up that amount spent on the boat from my savings so that I didn't increase my credit card balance. My savings accounts are now empty but I feel good that I didn't add to the debt.

I have not used my credit cards for any new purchases other than for reoccurring subscriptions. I have created an inpiration board that I put inside my closet door so I see it every morning to remind me how badly I want to no longer be in debt. Although I am not ready to completely cut out *perks* in life I am excited that I am trying to cut back on costs by cutting my Netflix subscription in half saving me about $100/year, getting on my husband's car insurance saving me about $360/year. Then next I am going to try and start talking to our cable company about reducing our cable package...the way I look at it is any small bit helps rather than cutting everything out
