Thrifty Hooray! Paid off the Truck!

I can't believe I forgot to blog about the fact my husband and I paid off the Truck on Monday of this week! Yippie! One debt gone, only a whole bunch left to go, but this is still a huge celebration! Over the summer time we paid thousands on the truck simply by not going shopping, eating out, and saving on gas and sitters! In the summer I am a SAHM, but only for those two months. Since it is for two months and I still get paid, we make the most of the extra money mentioned above. As you can see, we put it all towards the truck and paid it off two years before it would have if we had of only paid the monthly payment! I am very proud of this. Next, we have a credit card that we used for plane tickets to bring in my father-in-law two years in a row to watch our son. It was a savings at that time to have him cook for us and watch our son while we worked. How awesome was it that his grandpa from another country could watch him and save us money? We didn't bring in the father-in-law this year because we are saving any monies in that amount for US to go to Romania this coming Summer so we can see all the relatives!

Okay, just wanted to share this celebration and what a weight off the old shoulders! One less monthly payment!

Congratulations! I love driving "free"--you'll appreciate your truck so much more now that it's paid for!
