We Did It!

Well Dave...We are debt free

from daveramsey.com on Fri, 05 Jul 2013 09:23:53 CST Dave, I am 37 years old & my wife is 36. We have 3 kids. I have been working for a company for 18 years & 4 years ago they decided to start a new pay base. I am in sales so it is commission based & was a major pay cut. That day, My wife & I decided we had made to much money over the years to be in debt as far as we were. We did not spend any more money than our friends & family but were still in debt roughly $130k. I sold my Hummer H3 & started making extra payments on the house. Four years later, we are debt free. July 2nd we sent in our last mortgage payment. Our home is worth nearly $300k & best of all, it is ours. My wife & I have been married for 14 years with 3 kids & owe no one a penny. It is crazy to think that if we would like new bedroom furniture, we just need to save for a month or two & pay cash. Thank you for your message each day. We did not get to be debt free over night but with hard work we made it!!!
