Becoming Debt Free in 2009

I get to pay off some debt today – YIPPEEE

Filed under: Debt,Journey to Debt Freedom — ambercouric @ 8:45 am

I am so excited today.  This is the first time since starting this blog that I have been paid.  I get to pay off some debt.  Unfortnately, this time of the month is when we pay most of the utilites and other expenses so not to much goes to debt but some will.  I’ll update my totals after the bills are all written.

Who ever knew paying bills could be so much fun?



  1. It can be. I just wish I got paid more often so I could experience the fun of dividing things up. The first four days after payday is fun then it’s a longgggggggg wait for 27 more days to pass LOL

    Happy Pay Day

  2. Hi there-my favourite time of the month is always the end as bills get paid such as the mortgage, debts get paid and I end the month on a high knowing I’m going in the right direction!! Great news for you-remember, slow progress is better than no progress (my new motto!)

  3. LOL I do that too every other week. One paycheck is the utilities, mortgage, and a small portion to debt, but the other is the one that I love paying the most! It is the car notes and all of the credit cards!

  4. I am just thrilled that the end of the month is here, and I can update all my debt balances again! I get such a charge seeing my amounts go down! Look for my progress bar to be updated next week! 🙂

  5. That is fantastic! Congrats! I am with the group in saying that I USUALLY like to see the end of the month – that is when I do my ‘debt review’ and total all my debt. Usually there is a decrease, but lately there has been an increase — but not next month 😉 I am looking forward to the end of November for that!

    Keep up the great work

  6. @Jolie – I actually get excited when the bills come in the mail now so I can see the lower balances.

    @ Sharon – Rose – I love your motto. I may use that for myself (with credit to you of course).

    @ Chrisite – Our checks run a little funny. The middle of the month is about $3000 more than the end of the month so we can do a lot at the end of the month.

    @MadeMistakes- I agree love seeing those balances go down.

    @Jpkittie -Looking forward to seeing your November balances go DOWN.
