Had I continued working, October 21st would have been my one year anniversary at Whole Foods! Which means that it's been thirteen months since we have purchased anything, and I do mean ANYTHING, with credit! We have used checks, we have used our debit card which is (obviously! duh!) linked to our checking account, but we have. Not. Used. A. Credit. Card.
And while thirteen months may not sound like a big deal, it is huge.
Because that comes on the heels of eleven years of spending lots and lots and lots of money on credit cards.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not an oncoming train!

Totally awesome! We just started doing the Dave thing. This is our first paycheck using cash. It really is harder to spend. You are one of my inspirations, by the way, for getting out of debt and all that.
