Well… almost. πŸ™‚ We haven’t paid the house off (though we’ve paid off a good chunk of it too!), but we officially have no other debt. I’ve been waiting to announce this until I got the official email from Sallie Mae since that’s how I announced it when we paid off my student loans last year. Well, it took SallieMae a month to get the email to us, but guess what:


We officially began 2014 with no student loan debt, no car notes, and no credit card debt! Technically we’ve never had a car note or credit card debt, but I’m proud of us for always paying for things in full too so that’s why those make the list. After so much work and lots of sacrifices, we have finally done it! Β πŸ˜€ If you are wondering what it feels like to pay off all that debt, here’s a good representation:
