Paid off debts...thank you!

The final payment of my debt consolidation loan came out of my account earlier in the week, and I then received an unexpected tax refund, so have just paid off the balance of my student loans.

It hasn't quite sunk in that I'm debt free...after two years of stress and struggle. I'm going to be nearly £900 better off a month. I almost can't believe this day has finally arrived... I've been saying "when I'm debt free I will... " for so long!

Have upped my mortgage payment from next month for a start, and am sorting out an ISA for savings. Stunned that it's finally here!

Thank you everyone who contributes to this board - I really couldn't have done it without all of you! :j:j:beer::j:j:T:T:T

    Wahoo well done you!!! :beer:

    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

    Well done, Congratulations!:beer:

    I know how you feel, after paying off my debts recently, I felt a bit "flat". Now, like you, I overpay my mortgage and am saving. Its all down to this site, though, and changing my way of thinking.

    Well done and enjoy!
