Another one bites the dust!

I just finished making the final payment on one of my old, cancelled credit cards. I wasn't expecting to do this until after the 1st of next month, but the funds became available to do so early so I decided to pay it and be done with it. Only one more payment on one final card next month, and I will be completely, 100% free of consumer debt!!!!! And since I've become very strict about PIF on my active cards, I'm ending each month without any debt carrying over!

 

It's been a long, long, looooooong time in coming, but I'm almost there!!!!! :smileyvery-happy:

I did the same thing two months ago, I paid off 3 cards that had balances but were closed cards.

 

I also PIF all the active cards. Obsession to use cards and PIF before statment closes.
