Other than our mortgage; zero debt.

The same here.

Paid it all off in the last 6 months. Believe me, it hurt.

Don't you at least feel good about being out of debt? I've been out of debt since around 1973 and the feeling of being debt free was tremendously exhilirating for me.

In fact, buying a house back in the 80s and being in debt again was a bit of a downer for me.

We feel great about it. It's freed up literally hundreds of dollars a month that we used to pay in interest. It's just that coming up with the great wads of cash to pay the bills down to zero wasn't easy.

We just found out last week that we'd actually overpaid one of them by $300 when a check arrived in the mail. Man did we laugh about that.
