I Did It! I’m Free of my Cursed Credit Card!

As I mentioned before, I've spent the last year or so trying to pay down a credit card.  The process was pretty discouraging since the card was for business, and I occasionally had to purchase stuff with it, thereby slowing down the payoff time and preventing me from seeing a lot of movement in the lowering balance (it felt like I put all my money towards it and the balance never dropped…so frustrating!), but today, it's official:

The feeling is almost surreal…I've focused so much of my time and energy, and I've been so hard on myself for the last long year that to think that it's over is almost unreal.

Still, I am ecstatic!  I'm so happy and proud of myself for making it through this and I can't wait to do something really awesome to celebrate!  What to do, what to do…I don't know yet, but something good…this was really, really hard!  Shall I go shopping?  Out to eat?  I don't know!  Btw, if any one is interested in hearing what I did to pay off the card, drop me a comment, and I'll try to throw something together.

Maybe I'll get the point and shoot camera that I need?  The one I have is really so whacky.  Look what showed up today in my import:


My salad photo from yesterday that my camera claimed was no longer on my memory card...grr…I'm not sure how much more of this crazy camera I can take!  lol

Ok, I I'm off to brainstorm some sort of awesome celebration treat. 🙂

  1. CONGRATULATIONS! What a great feeling it must be. So, okay, since you suggested, how did you do it so fast? I'm still paying off mine. I guess it depends on how much you have…

  2. Congrats on card ! I thought you got a new camera for Christmas? Well, hope it all works out. What's up with all your craft projects? Have a great day, celebrating 0 balance ! I know the feeling.:)

  3. A girl can never have too many cameras!You can tell I am so NOT high tech. Thanks for response. Hope things get all squared away for you so you can get back to your crafts!!

  4. WOW! Amazing! That's so great to hear!!! Figuring out what to do to celebrate is a tough one. Obviously you want to mark this accomplishment somehow, and yet it seems counter-intuitive to congratulate yourself by spending more money! However I think it's really important to do something to recognize this achievement – maybe do something you have been wanting to do for a long time!

    I'd be interested in hearing more about what you did to pay off your credit card. Actually I am looking for guest posts while I'll be out of the country – any chance you'd be interested in writing a guest post for me on how you paid it off???

    I am so very happy for you! And I don't have a credit card, but I do have a student debt. Your story made me more aware of the dangers of running up a cc debt… I always thought I'd get a cc when I graduated but now I don't anymore. So you've kinda saved me from falling into the cc-trap;-)
