One of the commenters then used me in another blog, here. And again, that rockstar feeling came around.
I don't have much excitement like that, so I get pretty pumped about it!
One commenter asked what we did after we got out of debt.
Oh... I guess there is life after debt after all!
We paid off the last of it right around our 4th wedding anniversary, so instead of going on a picnic or something else inexpensive like we had done for the previous two, we went out to eat! The tab? $80. When we saw the bill we laughed. We planned on spending that much, but when we actually saw it, we thought of what all we could do with $80, and decided that it was our last expensive meal out for awhile.
Since then we've been saving for a newer car. We currently share a 1997 Nissan Sentra with 285k miles on it. Once we have the cash to buy another car, we'll start saving for 3 months worth of living expenses. Then to buy another car (because the Sentra won't last forever!), and then to go to Disney World.
Sounds so simple, but I can't even imagine how awesome Disney World will feel with two cars and money in the bank!
What did you do when you got out of debt? Or... what will you do when you get out of debt? OR...... what are you able to do because you never went down that road in the first place?
