What I'm Financially Thankful For

While I am thankful for all the standards - my family, health, house, etc, I wanted to write a list of things I am thankful for in terms of my personal finance.

  • My jobs - although I complain from time to time about working so much, working both of my jobs has allowed up to accelerate our debt payoff.
  • My husband's business - this is a high risk venture that he pours all his time into. The plan is for this company to eventually fund our early retirement (of course there is a contingency plan).
  • Our financial awakening - we were in a downward spiral, charging everything, including gas, groceries & unnecessary crap. Last year, we woke up and started fixing all our mistakes.
  • The progress on our debt - one year ago we had about $38,000 in credit card debt. Right now, we have just under $15,000. We're behind our original plan to pay it all off in 2007, but we've still made tremendous progress.
  • Our budget - I love knowing how much money we're supposed to spend when. It helps me keep things in check and limit my spending.
I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and have plenty to be thankful for!
