B is picking up a bottle of this on Friday night. We've never had Veuve, but we are celebrating and this is the true celebratory bubbly.
What are we celebrating, you ask? As of tonight, our household is 100% consumer debt free!!! We finished paying off our graduate school debt this summer, and tonight we made the last car payment on B's car. We don't carry credit card debt, so we offcially have zero, zero, zero personal debt!!!!!
We still have our mortgage (apparently mortgage is not considered consumer card debt), college savings for the boys, and I will need a new car in 2-3 years (mine is 9 years old), so we aren't running off on an exotic vacation with our new found money, but still........we can't help but be super excited to know that all our hard work and our ability to buckle down and budget has really paid off.
I think that the $40 splurge is going to be soooooo worth it!!!


  1. Congrats! I was debt free until I got my car. But only payment I have. Enjoy the bubbly.

  2. Congrats congrats congrats! The Veuve is going to be lovely!



  3. Ah- that's so awesome! Congratulations!! Cheers!


  4. That is awesome - what an inspiration! Cheers to you.

  5. Congrats! Being debt free is such a blessing!

  6. Congratulations! It's amazing how so many in our generation don't see being debt-free as any kind of a goal at all. I'm a spender myself, and am so very grateful to have married a saver. :) Veuve is a favorite of mine, hope you loved it.
