Someone asked if anyone had a “special”

something they did to memorialize being debt free. I didn’t, but I just got a ZERO statement balance in the mail from the 1st cheetah we killed this month. Thanks to the question, I am going to keep it (and all the subsequent ones we pay off) and put them in our family scrapbook.
Holy cow. We are really on the road to being DEBT FREE.

Wow

My Home Depot balance (account has long been closed) was $669.40.

They just gave me a $314.40 DISCOUNT to pay it in full: $355.

Holy hannah !!

I took it. The payment is pending to February 28th since right now I have $215 in my checking account but we’ll be good by then, but holy heck. That was a HUGE discount.

That makes 3 cheetahs dead this month. We are halfway to being debt free except for the car.

It was nice for the kids to have the visual of cutting up the credit cards (yeah, I know DR says to do it as BS1, but it’s more of a teaching moment when they see it being paid off & cutting it up for nevermore.)
