Exactly, you'll be forced to share it soon enough, don't worry.

Congrats on being debt free. It's easier to stay there than it is to get there, so you are over the hump now.

+1 on that. I have been debt free (other than house payment) for over 20 years. My house will be paid for in 3 years. I really need to put new siding on the house and build a new garage.

Congrats! My parents wasted a lot of money and really paid for it in the long run, keep it up.

I owe $419 on our mortgage and my wife starts a decent job (Hagerty collector car insurance) after raising our two kids and struggling for six years. Until she makes me buy another house out of hickville, we're golden. I need to borrow $ and buy a car before she spends it all! Actually, I have $16K on zero percent credit cards but I have $17K in the bank. I love freeloading credit card companies, sorry about the crisis everyone.

Well done sir. You unfortunately are in the minority and revolving debt has much to do with out present economical situation. Wish more folks followed your lead.

Yeah, that's the minimum. I've been sending $1400-2500 per month ever since I bought the turbo **** for my car. If I had an extra $800 per month, my life would be really different.

Ain't that the truth. The wife's isn't nearly that high, but it certainly isn't something I like paying every month.
