Suzi. Just keep plugging away. Some people like to make a chart or
pop balloons after they pay so much off. It helps. We have $152,000
to pay off. It will take us at least 10 years in the most ideal
situation. It most likely will take longer…You know what though. I
would rather work hard to pay the debt off than always working and
living the same but not making much progress because I wasn’t
budgeting, cash flowing and doing the snowball thing.
We are in a much better place than a year ago. If the gas, grocery
and other prices continue it will take much longer. Grr.

off the debt, and have a light at the end of the tunnel, OR, you can
keep up the status quo for the rest of your light.

whatever, you pay off the debt, you make permanent changes in your
life, and then move forward.
