Y'all might remember shortly after my wedding I posted about being broker than broke. Well, folks, get out your maraccas, a bongo drum, and your tambourines. We're having a parade to celebrate that I will be credit card debt FREE by the end of November. Woot!

(Yes, certainly only to run them right back up where they were for Christmas, but still...)

Nah, that's just a little joke. Even my biggest holiday expenditures usually leave me about $1400 in the hole all things told. My credit debt is a whole lot bigger than that. (At least for the moment, but it's been shrinking since the wedding.)

Now there are a few things that certainly may stretch that goal a little longer. My husband is talking about taking classes this fall. He also needs a new laptop computer. (He can't take classes without it.) That would likely stretch things out until December, then with the holidays, I'll be debt free by the end of January. But that's still fine with me!

Not to mention, I have a third car to sell still, and the condo will hopefully be gone soon. Eliminating one of the three households we pay for each month will help immensely.

I'm off to clean up, head over to spruce up the condo, and give the realtor a call.

I have a long time til I'm able to say "I have no credit card debt"! It started at the wedding, then the honeymoon, then vacations and such and just kept on adding up. Congrats to you for being on your way out of debt!
