Hi Soulsellerman!

Congrats on the awesome effort! I am totally impressed with the vigor you've shown...and sustained for 3 months...on tackling this debt. Based on some of your early posts, I was somewhat skeptical that you would be able to follow through. Sounds like you are working like a fiend for the extra income to paydown the balances. In a previous post (I think) you mentioned also selling some stuff to raise cash.

Your updates have not included much information beyond the numbers. Watching the zeros accumulate is great, but the next step will be to adapt to LBYM. I was wondering what influence your (and your DW's) efforts this last few months have had on your views for spending/saving? Do you find any changes in your thought patterns about some of those aspects that were richly debated in your first threads?

When you have the time, please post and share what other adjustments you have made.

Looking forward to your happy dance in a few more months!!

Making Trax
