Getting out of debt

I paid off a credit card today. And I'll probably pay off another one next month. It felt really good. Basically, Mr. Geeky and I decided to take our meager savings and pay these puppies off, mainly so we can put more in savings. So that's 1 down and 3 to go. Most of the debt on these cards comes from several poor summers either in grad school or the early years of Mr. Geeky's employment. We used them to buy groceries, pay bills and generally lived off of them on occasion. I do know we financed one of Mr. Geeky's conference trips on one a few years ago, right after we moved here. But other than that, we haven't really used them.

Of course now I'm probably on some terrorist watch list since I'm paying a card off in a lump sum. We'll find out Friday when the payment goes through.
