So far you've neglected cash flow. Having debt means that you have a certain monthly obligation. Having no debt means that you do not. So you have flexibility you do not have if you have debts and non-cash assets.Thanks, I'll be sure to note that when I start getting more "realistic." My current favorite method is to tally up my required expenses, then add a buffer for fun, small "emergencies," irregular expenses, etc. I treat this number like a ceiling (never allow myself to spend more). Anything left over at the end of the month rolls into my top-priority debt.I'll probably discuss this in more detail when I get to "Emergencies" later on...SpeleoFool.
