It ain't the bank's no more

My wife supprised me this evening with a nice little letter from the bank with whom we had our trailer note. $0.00 ballance due!!

We've had our trailer for 21 months and now it is 100% ours!

When we purchased the trailer we took out the standard 12 year note with the intention of paying it off soon but I had no idea the determination of my loving wife to get'er done!

Absoflippintively awesome!

If'n ya can't tell..... I'm sorta kinda happy right now.

just thought I'd share

happy camping y'all!

Dave Ramsey would be proud!! And frankly, I am proud of you too, because now you have $X00.00 more each month to go camping with. I was wondering if I should write a post about our plans to pay cash for our trailer.

You may recall I said we were going to order in April 08. We've changed our minds. We are going to save our money and pay cash outright for the trailer.

Thanks for the inspiration. I'm going to write that post now. Tell your wife I'm impressed!

I am proud for you GREAT GOALS!!!!

We were fortunate enough when we bought ours and they asked about the loan. Well We were blessed and paid cash. Blew there mind when I paid by 100.00 bills.

I saved for three years cause I am tired of notes for the luxuries in life.

Our First trailer I financed for 7 years and paid off in 3. Man that felt good

Thanks all!

My wife is truly amazing. She holds down a great job and maintains our books and keeps me from spending too much while allowing me some luxuries. She is also a listener to Dave Ramesy and I know that he has inspired her to do what she has done to help bring us out of debt. One step at a time.
