In the last five years my husband and I have managed to:

Put my daughter through a private liberal arts college.
Build up our savings.
Pay off out mortgage. (This was our Christmas present to each other, we paid off the last 15K of the mortgage, now we're rebuilding our savings account.)

We have two credit card accounts, one we use for almost everything and pay it off monthly, the other is in reserve.

I checked my FICO score last fall, and it was 817.

My question is this: What will not having any debt do to my FICO score?
