Dear Dave Ramsey,

We are Celebrating at our house!!!
We are now officially debt free (well other than our home).


11 months of budgeting, saying no, using cash, saying no again, and every trial and road bump you can think of from car maint., car tires, laptop dying, trip to the emergency room, INSURANCE, you name it, it happened!

Dave, if I could take you to dinner I would. However, I have a savings account that needs my attention now and then the house payment needs to dissapear, BUT till then, know I am thinking of you!
Thanks Dave! My family owes you a big one! Not in cash form though, just Love!

I know that you guys worked hard to get here and it is a huge accomplishment. You should be proud of yourselves.

Mackenzie said...

Congratulations, my sweet friend! Definitely something that should be celebrated....from the "night out" envelope, I think.

I am so proud of you for doing this!

Next step: NO MORTGAGE!!!!

Cherie said...

That is probably one of the greatest accomplishments ever! Woot woot!!! :D

Especially in these hard times definately peace of mind - Congrats!

Carrie said...

WAY TO GO!!!!! It feels great to have financial peace. We only have our new van payment (I know he says no to new cars, but I am not putting my babies in a beater), house and student loans. I cannot wait until they disappear. We are trying to teach our kids that stuffitis is not the way to live.

Make sure you give yourself a treat - even if it is just a hot fudge sundae ($1) from McD's. Good for you guys!!!

Rick Carpenter said...

Congratulations! I'm trying to get there. I only have a small car payment aside from my mortgage. If we can get through this crazy economic mess I'll make it!

The Faithful Girl said...

GOOD FOR YOU!!! It's nice to hear that someone is finally out of debt. We're working on it, but we've got a long way to go. We did just pay off 1 credit card, which leaves one more, then it's the car and student loans.

You deserve a big pat on the back. This is major!

Natalie said...


That is so awesome.

I do still have my sheet for you ... if the offer still stands.

What a great day, Suzanne.

Absolutely and totally impressive! I'd like to know how many people in our country can claim that. What is your goal...to be completely debt free? Just because? Do I sound naive? Just curious.....

Kristen said...

Hooray! Way to go. Let's go celebrate with ice cream. :)

Miss Megan said...

Attention everyone! I big round of applause for our dear friend Suzanne! Congratulations girlfriend! I am so happy for you and your family...I can only imagine it is such a great feeling to accomplish something that big. You know who has yet to even get started, but you have inspired me. Thank you!
