until recently, the only thing not paid for was my house. (It is 60%-70% paid off) and I am helping my daughter with we college so she will not have loans. No credit card debt, either.
Unfortunately, my car died for good and I had to finance a new one. Got the smallest Ford, and 0% financing, so I am kinda OK with that.
I just hate being in debt.
the middle class is getting hammered by more property taxes to pay for falling home prices and fewer homeowners, good-sized utility increases due to more defaults, and so on....... at least I am being hammered.
Everyone wants more from me, but my employer doesn't want to give me any more. Savings account is dimishing...... We don't eat out any more. Hanging on....
