Marseeah 6 years as a year ago, I have no cc or miscellaneous debt of any kind... but unlike last year, I have a mortgage! And, as I bought a house in one of the few areas in the country where real estate is still appreciating, not depreciating, I am excited to spend $4k a month on my mortgage and not on rent! katierose 6 years I've cut my debt in half over the last year and I'm hoping to pay off the rest of it in the next couple months. starangel82 6 years About the same. I've still got my student loans and am paying off some medical bills. They are slowly getting whittled down, but not enough to make me feel like I've reduced my debt. haydee 6 years we bought a house back in 2006 and we owe about the same now, I just hope this time we get a refund Pegona 6 years I still have student loans sitting around waiting for me to finish grad school, and that's it! anakiya 6 years More but we're in a better place this year than we were last year. So I am thankful!!!! bbrimacombe 6 years More student loan debt since I'm still in school but I won't be accumulating anymore. And I'm done this year so it won't be long before I start paying it down and it should be all gone by sometime in 2010. hibiscus96818 6 years Unfortunately, I have more now than I did a year ago. Surgery (even with insurance) is expensive and I had three this year. I am working to pay everything off now and I'm hoping there are no more unexpected medical emergencies. Alithyra 6 years Unfortunately more. Moving out was expensive, and it's all on credit cards. A lot of that has already been paid off, but a lot more is still to go. Spectra 6 years Less debt, I guess...we're chipping away at the student loans and the mortgage and that's the only debt I have. No credit card debt to worry about though. sonya-ina 6 years I don't really consider owning a house "debt" because debt has a horrible connotation... owning a house is a GOOD thing! Liss1 6 years Lots more debt, We bought a house :) RosaDilia 6 years Absolutely less debt!!! And if feels good. fitgirlFL 6 years Much less!!! I currently have no debt at all!!! YAY!!!! I had to take a second job to pay it off. I am so happy to not owe a single dime now. And I still have the extra job so that I can spend this year padding my savings. Le-Luxe 6 years More...UGH. Working on whittling it away to nothing this year though... Swedeybebe 6 years SO much less- yay!!! MarinerMandy 6 years Less! I'm making more this year too, so more to dedicate to getting it taken care. Almost done with my student loans, yay! Just have this one bad debt that is slowly getting whittled away. Hoping by the end of this year it will be gone. Renees3 6 years my CC debt is under $1000, I owe for another year on my car, so I'm doing good in that respect. But we bought house in Dec so now Im WAY more in debt! supercoolnat 6 years Me - the same, none! My husband - still working on those student loans, slowly but surely. Megatron 6 years Little credit card debt but TONS in student loans and it looks like more if I go to grad school which is looking like a good option right now. verily 6 years No credit card debt, no store credit debt, and my loans are slowly but surely being whittled down. I'm in a good place...until I buy a house that is... cmd0610 6 years ive never had credit card debt but I bought a new car so i guess i owe more on that now than i did when i had my other car . .
