He did it!

He did it!  Rod did it!  He cut up ALL of our credit cards!  Today is his late day at work.  This morning we read the Bible and then he read us the Dave Ramsey books.  Afterwards, I was cleaning up the breakfast dishes and I looked over at Rod.  He was standing over the trashcan cutting up his credit cards.  I was in shock and the kids were cheering.  There was a dramatic pause as he cut up his beloved Best Buy card.  I then went and got my cards out of the fire safe and he proceeded to cut those up as well.  I felt physically ill during this process as this has been our back-up.  I knew that if an emergency came up we could put it back on the cards, or if there was a great deal that we didn’t have the cash for now, we could put it on the cards.  The children cheered the whole time.  One thing is for certain, I’m really motivated to get our emergency fund in place now.  Another thing too, this is radically changing our lives!

    Good for you! We’ve been without credit cards for – 22 years- our whole marriage. Never had to borrow, just some doing without. I’m so glad we don’t have debt. It is a great feeling!

    Great! 🙂 We probably need to do that as well. We payed them off, lowered their balance and keep them locked up, but what a step! Dave Ramsey’s stuff is soooo good!

    Say, you use Ambleside Onlne, right? How is that going for you? Did you have to buy a lot of the books. I’m seriously considering it. Any input you have would be GREAT!
