    I am super intrigued by this idea. I have tried versions of this but not for such a long time. I am so impressed and will enjoy watching your progress.

    I like this, since I am constantly falling down. Sometimes it's hard to recover when you "fall off the wagon." I keep reminding myself of how nice it is when there are no credit card bills at the end of the month. Maybe one day I will actually not HAVE any credit card bills at the end of the month!

    hi there! i'm over from design mom. i really like what you are doing here lady! we are avid debt-free livers. eww, did i just call us 'livers'? you know what i mean. we have never carried any debt except the 3 years after we graduated from college. we lived like paupers and paid off our student loans in 3 years. now we are a family of four living off of 40k a year. and we live very comfortably! our debt right now is our house, but we've already paid it down so much in the 5 years that we've lived here that we have a very small mortgage. this has allowed us to save the expenses to adopt our third child and to give funds away to various organizations that we support. living frugally is hard sometimes, but for me, it's harder to think of all the money wasted on stuff that doesn't matter anyway.
