I paid off my house yesterday, 12 years early.

I am now 100% debt free.

When I first came here, I had just started my first real job at the age of 26. I had $20k in credit card debt, lived with my parents, drove a $40,000 car (back when that was a lot), and had no real financial plan or skills.

Thank you all for the tips, tricks, and free entertainment I learned here.
