Today is a very special day, folks!!!! I paid off the first debt in my debt snowball!!!! And do you want to know how I feel?

Like this! This is how I feel!!!
As of today, Patty the Pancreas, (my loving nickname for my insulin pump), is mine all mine!! I got her in March of 2009, which means I had been paying on her for 4 years. FOUR. YEARS. Almost to the day. And let me go ahead and answer your question...YES, insurance paid for MOST of it. (It's an expensive little device.)

It feels good to be able to take that payment off of my calendar and put it towards other debts and savings! And I absolutely can't wait to finish paying off these little debts! 

WOOT WOOT WOOT!!!! I'm going to celebrate today by smiling, eating some leftover poppyseed chicken for lunch (my favorite, thanks mom!) and maybe taking a few bucks out of my "food" envelope for some ice cream! (and really putting that insulin pump to work!!) Haha.

OH YEAH. Speaking of envelopes, check out what I bought from thirty-one

It's a "coupon clutch", but instead of using the little dividers for coupons, I'm using them as categories to divide up my cash money!! It's WAY prettier than the envelopes, and absolutely reusable. :) It's a good idea, and if you want to do the same thing, you should order one when I have my thirty-one party next month.

A HUGE THANKS to all of you who have been incredibly supportive of me throughout this process. You make it so much easier! I can't wait to share more victories with you all!

  1. Congratulations on aying off that particular debt, although it wasn't one you should;ve felt guilty about incurring.

    My parents went debt free early in their marriage as soon as they paid of the few student loans my dad had for med school. His practice wasn't an expensive one to start, so they incurred no debt there. Since then, if they didn't have cash, they didn't buy it, so we lived in houses considered beneath our means for quite a few years before they could pay cash for a halfway nice house, but I think it kept the stress level down in their marriage, which in turn transferred less stress to my brother and me.
