I’m debt free!

Yesterday, I paid off the last $2000 dollars of my car loan. I am now totally debt free. I almost skipped out of the bank after the loan was closed. As I walked back to my office, I was tempted to buy myself a treat for paying off my loan and being debt free. A couple of ideas for different treats came to mind: an iPad, a chai latte from the local coffee shop, or a Bounty bar. Interestingly, the treats came to mind in order of most expensive to least, and almost as quickly as I thought of them, I rejected them. I couldn’t bring myself to buy a reward for paying off my car loan. My thought process was why celebrate spending with more spending? I strolled right on by the coffee shop and the convenience store without spending a cent. When I got back to the office, I congratulated myself on resisting spending.

Half an hour later, my boss came into my office and asked me if I wanted to go to the city, go shopping on Friday, and ‘oh yeah, drop off a proposal’ while I’m there.

Thank you universe, the irony is spot-on, as usual.

My plan for my trip to the city on Friday so far is to drop off the proposal, visit a couple pals and profs at the university, and then go to the mall. I have to get my friend a birthday present, but beyond that, I haven’t thought much about shopping. I think I’m going to sit down and make a shopping list before I step foot in the mall. There are a few things I’d like, and if the budget allows, I will buy them. If the June budget doesn’t allow it, I won’t by it. Simple as that.

That is, until I see a super cute pair of shoes.

Have a good ‘un

Country Girl.
