While I am often very discouraged by my student loan and home debt – something that keeps me going has been my freedom from credit card debt in 2016. This time last year I had about $1,700 left in credit card debt and I had it paid off by December.
I still use my credit cards – I just pay them off every week.
Every single week.
Sometimes even multiple times a week – once I see a balance I just pay it off. Doing this keeps me from spending more with them because I know it’s coming out of my bank account ASAP.
I’m going to Atlanta for Dragon*Con in September so I went ahead and bought my tickets and badge. It felt so good to just pay that off today and know that my vacation for this year is secure!
