When you pay off (or down) a credit card, celebrate the success! This might be when you hit a $1000 increment, or a $500 increment...Or the real BIGGIE, when you pay one off. Celebrate the achievement! Just don't go spend big bucks on a credit card!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I really liked your tip on celebrating the money successes too. I started my journey to pay off each of my 3 credit cards the middle of last year and have just finished paying off the 2nd one. I know it seems crazy but the way I celebrate paying off one is by calling the next one and setting the exact same monthly payment I was making on the previous. That feels good to me to know that I've already been budgeting for the payment in months past and it's starting a new card to get rid of plus I'm taking charge and telling them what I'll be paying, not a penny more or less regardless of what the company wants to get more interest money out of me.
