Congratulations! Now you can really put away for retirement.
^Thanks, FriHost is awesome. great hosting and great community. I've also saved a ton of money using FriHost, lets calculate it.
Since 2005 - 2015 = 10 years
Godaddy hosting is $10 bucks a month, x 10 years with frihost (120 months)
120 months x $10 bucks = $1,200 real dollars saved by using FriHost. that's amazing.
Congrats man! I know that feeling well. I was up to my ears in student debt because I attended a private university (big mistake) and lost lots of money in that. I just recently paid it back, and it feels good, definitely. I hate that it took so long, but it's a nice sense of accomplishment.
Hm, I got a loan for the house... But If the work situation would have been better in the 90s I would have had that cash now...
That's so amazing congrats!! I would also be debt free but am intentionally holding on to student loans because the rate is even better than I could ever get for a mortgage!
Fantastic! Debt free is definitely the way to be!!! It sickens (and frightens) me how debt-saturated our society is.
My husband and I are debt free, besides our mortgage. We recently refinanced our house, though, and at the currently low interest rates, we went from a 30-year mortgage to a 15-year mortgage, with our interest rate fixed for 5 years.
Some very amazing friends of mine just paid off their house in TWO YEARS. They are not rich (both work for small non-profit organizations), but before they were married, they were frugal and saved up enough to put a $100,000 downpayment on the house. My jaw dropped. Sounds like a dream (or a lie), but I know them, and it's a real story!
Maybe Frihost ought to start a topic on frugality? Or we could just start a thread? It's a huge topic I'm interested in. I know there's Economics and Marketing, but it's not quite the same.
Wow must be an amazing feeling to be debt free. I see a lot of people on the internet complaining about their student loans and how it takes out a large portion of their salary.
Talking about me, I just recently paid off my loans as well. It wasn't a student loan or anything but I took this loan for a small purchase of asset. It was a year long loan but I was able to pay it off in 11 months.
Im almost there myself..
Frihost has saved me a lot of money too. The best free hosting ever. And better than some paid options.
Congratulations for your liberation from shackles!!
