My subscription runs out this week and I've decided not to renew. I didn't want to leave without poking my head in and thanking you all for the support and advice as we've paid off our credit cards and started saving for some big goals. I don't think I would have had the motivation to see that through without being accountable to the Fools.

We are still 100% credit card debt free, other than monthly expenses. We are steadily paying down the car loans at their regular schedule. We are saving a remarkable amount of money now that we don't have debt. DH is still deployed, so we've increased our spending a little to give me a break with some of the housework/ yardwork and to give him a chance to buy some fun stuff to pass the time. Overall we've gotten a good balance between spending and saving.

Keep those snowballs rolling,
