The Good News Thread

So if this is considered a dupe please 86 it, but this is for good news - anything good that happens to you or that u hear about and feel like sharing. The only other thread i saw that seemed similar was the super happy fun thread. That borders on the silly though. This is strictly for great news! Im gonna kick it off by announcing that today with the help of my hero - my father- i am out of credit card interest hell! Over the last 8 years in this bitch of an economy, me and my wife have amassed a terrible credit card debt. Nothing like stereo systems or fancy clothes or stuff like that. Rescue dogs, children, and food and fuel had put us in major debt. I was making payments and more money was going twards interest than purchases. It sucked. My father basically became my interest free debt consolidation champion tonite. It will be a pleasure to make payments that in essence will be going twards the actual debt and not into the pockets of the damn loan shark credit card companies. I recently started making better money - i work my ass off, but im making good money and i will never let that happen again. Thanks Pops!

Re: The Good News Thread

Credit cards can really get you into trouble. Thankfully my wife and I are at a point in our lives where we don't carry over monthly balances, but back when we were first living together and she was going to school full time we often used our cards for groceries and other living expenses (and sure, more than a few dumb purchases were also made). Credit card debt can spiral out of control really quick.

This really is very good news. Having to fund all that interest just hurts your ability to dig out of it. Very cool that he did that for you.

My wife and I made a new years resolution to spend way less this year. Since Jan 1 we've eaten out a total of maybe 6 times, and all of them were at Panera Bread. I've cut my bills drastically and in the process learned some really great recipes and enjoyed cooking even more than before. It's amazing how you can go on autopilot with spending. Changing a few habits can really help, and in my case I don't even miss eating out.

Yeah seriously it can get up there. We usually do it for breakfast. Their bacon egg and cheese is pretty tough to beat.

All about the bread Schneed. I have that power sandwich or whatever it is, and I'm like, "This is a standard recipe sandwich." but DAMN, it's so good!

In my head $40 bucks is a trip to say Applebee's TGIF etc.... I got a 5 and 2 year old so they typicall eat cheap. I am still scratching my head how I got up to 40 at P. The kids meals don't included milk which is fawking BS.
