No debt for Christmas!!!!

I started YNAB last February and have reduced my credit card debt by half.  At the same time, I began saving for Christmas.  This year, for the first time, I was able to give the gifts I wanted to give and pay for them IN ALLOCATED MONEY! without incurring any debt.  This is huge for me.  It feels "clean" and guilt-free to be able to buy what I want, as my remaining credit card debt might as well be called "The Ghosts of Christmas Past."  It also made me more thoughtful about my gift-giving.

 

THANKS FOR A HAPPIER HOLIDAY, YNAB!

  • Congratulations and enjoy. 
    I plan for this to be me next year! Please be sure to tell me how amazing it all was when you’re done :-)

    (my ‘thing’ is food.... partly due to the wastage of material possessions and partly due to... I can never afford actual gifts 😢)
