I have $22,000 in debt and with an average income and with gas and
food going higher and higher I can pay off my debt in jan 2011 with
the baloon method.And if I apply every nickle I find on the ground
maybe a month sooner.Keep plugging and keep good charts of your
progress it is a good lerning tool
