All my bill are finally paid off. Now we have a phone bill which is about 30 dollars a month,a satelite bill which is 45 a month,callwave is 7.95 a month ,and electric which averages about 120.00 a month . It feels real good not to have any extra bills. How many of you are down to just this much regular bills? Nancy

Congratulations!It does feel good not to have a lot of payments every month.We got the credit cards out of the way about 2 years ago,big relief!!Will not go that way again,now its,use it up,wear it outmake do, or do without.Its amazing how much a person can buy.after giving away a pickup truck load of stuff we had packed back over the years,I made myself a promise not to buy anything I didnt desperately need.

Good work! We always pay off credit cards but that is still a lot (like eat into the savings not just come out of this month's pay once in a while), have mortgage, tel, all util. And electric was $360 last month :eek: though average is under $200. Hoping the monthly purchases- cash and charge- as well as electric drop enough for DH to retire when the Army will let him (and me not HAVE to go back to work). Hate to say it but look at kids and think "When you guys move out we won't need to air condition the second floor, that'll save a lot of electricity".

Congratulations!
Now these are the kinds of posts that give me encouragement!
Im still choping away at that credit card bill and looking soon at the day it will be under 1000 (total owed on it not per month).
I made myself a 3 year plan when I realized I let it get up to $5000. I have 8 months left to do it. But even if I dont make it exactly in 8 months I think I have been doing good.
