Credit Card Debt-Free

I did it, I paid off my credit cards (well my only credit card that was carrying a balance). I had to take the money from my emergency fund, but it is paid in full. And I feel great about it.

My sidebars have been updated. Not only was I able to pay off my credit card debt, but I still have $826.40 in my emergency fund, $100 in my travel fund, and $85 in my gift fund. I am going to work really hard over the next couple of months and try to rebuild my emergency fund back to $3000 while still contributing $100 a month to travel and $85 a month to gifts. I am going to need the gift money for Christmas shopping and the bf and I love to travel, so I am sure that money will come in handy.

I am shouting at the top of my lungs "I AM CREDIT CARD DEBT FREE."

Credit card debt is a problem for many people and is a major contributor to personal debt. Funding your lifestyle with a credit card is easy but the hard part is paying it off and clearing the debt.
