Such a strange feeling ;)

I've been making good money for the past 6 years, but we also have a lot of old debt from when DH was laid off, and he doesn't make good $$ at the job he was able to find, plus he burns so much gas $$ on his commute, that we really have to watch our budget VERY well.  It's rather tight.  We always have enough and are able to save every month, but again it's because of how tightly we control what we spend.

Anyway, with my new job, I'm earning quite a bit more $$, and I just got done doing the bills for the next month and I have SO much left over!  It's so weird...I keep looking through everything thinking I must have missed a big bill, but I didn't, LOL.  What a strange feeling!  I'm so excited to be able to pay down our last debts a bit faster and dump all that extra into our savings.  Yeah!!

I spent several years drowning in credit card debt, barely having enough left for groceries in the end. The last couple years I have busted my ass to get all but one card paid off and my truck will be paid off in August which will be a huge weight off my shoulders! I'm definitely not rolling in cash or anything, but it definitely feels great not to have to worry so much!

lol. i got a raise last year and felt the same way. we hadn't been as frugal as normal and when i went over the bills, we still had quite a bit to put in savings. i thought we'd blown the month. it's a feeling i think we all could get pretty used to. haha!
