I always listen to the wife, God bless her. TT will be paid off in two years. House will be paid off in 2 and one half years. All vehicles will be paid off in eight months. We are both teachers and have been cut to the bone with furloughs. We lost 18% of our income the last year due to cuts and down-sizing. We are gonna make it thank God.

About 10 years ago my wife and I decided that we wanted to buy a camper some day. We decided it best to save up rather than finance. In 2004 we spent some of the savings on a Rockwood PUP (just couldn't wait). We continued to save until 2008. Went to the dealer and found what we liked, but it was pretty expensive. We were able to make a deal because the dealer gave us 100% of what we paid for the PUP in 2004 (minus the A/C we added in 2005) so we had enough cash to buy it outright. Paying cash was probably the best financial decision we have ever made.
