Win - paid off our credit card float!

I started using YNAB in July, and at that point we typically spent about $3000 a month on our credit card.  My husband would pay us at the end of the month (he has his own business) , and I would pay off the credit card and then start right back again spending money we didn't have. :)

So when we started using YNAB and actually budgeting our money,  one of the first orders of business what to pay off that float, and I just realized it happened!  After 5 months of hard work, I just paid the credit card bill for October and all of November's credit card spending is fulling covered, with the money in our account. 

It's quite an amazing feeling.  Now I'm looking forward to putting that extra money on things like buffering our emergency fund and oh yeah, paying for kid's braces. :)
