I did it!

Following my carefully set out plan, I've completed graduate school, sold my house, and found the job I've always wanted in the mountains. The day after I closed on the house, I used my equity to pay off my car, my credit cards, and my student loan with enough left over for a down payment on a new house. I move to the mountains on November 1. I also have a nice little investment nest egg set aside.

I'm beginning this new life completely DEBT FREE! How sweet it is!!!!!!!! All I have to do now is to add to my investments and refrain from acquiring debt in the future. Thanks to slaying the debt dragon, I've been able to plan out a budget that enables me to live well below my means.

Thanks to you all for your support, encouragement, and ideas over the past 2 years. After a lifetime of foolish mistakes, I've finally become a real Fool.

Hang in there folks .. with planning and discipline you, too, can realize the dream.


Warmest regards, redhed

Let me be the first to say:

Woo hoo!

Congratulations on getting your life in order and getting everything you wanted.

Now remember to hang out here for awhile and regularly offer encouragement to those poor souls still mired in debt.

p.s. That's awesome that you were able to make everything fall into place like that! How does that quote go? "Luck is a combination of skill and hard work?"

Fitting, me thinks.

Congradulations!
