As tough of a year as 2009 was for most people. I accomplished a couple of different things towards the end of 2009 that will be providing me a much better start to 2010 than I’ve had in any years previous.
In 2009 I finished paying off the last of my credit card debt. Ten years ago when I got married I brought over $15,000 in credit card debt to our budget. We’re now completely out of credit card debt and won’t be getting back into credit card debt at all.
The other item that was a huge dark financial shadow over my life was a significant medical bill left over from a gall bladder surgery I had three years ago. This past month I finished paying off the $7,000+ of that bill and have gotten that out of the way as well.
2010 will allow me to focus more on the remainder of our other medical bills and debts to move us into an even better financial position.
What are you hoping to accomplish financially in 2010 for you and your family?
