Hi Everyone......I'm back!

Boy I was starting to have discusscooking withdrawals Well we got all moved into dads on the 7th....the day we closed on the house. I'm happy to report as right now we're completey debt free. I can't begin to tell you how good it felt to write those checks and then tell the card companies......cancel my account. Never.....Never.....Never will I have another credit card again. Just too easy to see something you want and not have the free cash and say, "Charge It". I had the one for 13 years.....I can't even imagine how much money they made off of me in interest. Heck I bet I was still paying on that shirt I'd bought 13 years ago . Anyway, for those who are thinking about getting one......stop and banish that idea quickly. If I can't pay for it with cash, check or my debit card then forget it I don't need it. I should note that doesn't include a house or vehicles though.....kind of need them Besides a debit card works just like a credit card so if I need to make reservations and they need a credit card I can use the debit card.
Ok enough motherly advice......if I'd been smart I'd of listened and followed that advice above as it was my father who tried to instill that in me early on in my life but I didn't listened. And as always not listening to him cost me.
Glad to be back. I have a lot to catch up on reading wise I see.

Hello Sizz!! I'm so glad your backI bet it feels good to be debt free!!!I have the same philosophy, if I don't have the cash, then I don't need it!!
you have to get caught up on all the crazy stuff that's been going on. It'll take you a while, but, it's worth it. You've got to see the thread that sushi started about answering a question with a question, you won't believe how many posts and questions are in there it's funny though!!!

Thanks everyone! Its really good to be back.....I missed you all.
Yes PA the house hunt is on but its slow right now. The 2 houses we're interested in are still not officially on the market yet so thats frustrating. We have looked at an apartment and should hear about it tomorrow. He has a tenant living in one of his houses and he offered the apt. to him prior and is waiting to see if the tenant wants the apt. still. If so then we'll check out the rental house he has. There is a townhouse coming up for rent also. But I'd much rather rent the house vs. the apt. or townhouse......mainly for privacy. We have till the middle of August to find a rental so something should come up.
