Well here is my sad news for the day: I am way over that average! And not just be a little bit. But by a lot of bit!
There is good news in site though. In a year from now our debt should be cut in half.
The bad news. In a year from now we will still have a bit more credit card debt than the average family.
The good news: In 2 years from now, we should be debt free. I hope so anyway. From this point forward it should be about 20 months to no debt. That puts us at August 06.
I think that is fabulous! Especially for the amount of debt we have!
And I'm still hopeful that dh gets a bonus next year, or a raise, or his side business earns a bit of money so that maybe we can get it paid off a bit quicker.
But in the meantime, August '06 is my dream to be debt free. And that will feel SOOO good!
