Goodbye Nissan…thanks for being there.

Back in May, I wrote a post about selling a car to pay off debt. Many young couples in our Financial Peace University small group had done such a thing. Back then, I searched not really hard high and low for a replacement vehicle for our family of five. Then we decided that if we just focus on paying the debt, it will be ours in no time.

Recently, my hubby got a new field-based position where one of the necessities for his job is a company car {insert Hallelujah Chorus}. I was overjoyed!! We will no longer have to pay for gas, insurance, or maintenance on a second vehicle. Woo Hoo!!! My husband took hours was quick to detail his car and listed it on several car listing sites. Within 6 hours of listing it on, he got a phone call {at 9:30PM last night} and the young man bought it! The buyer got a great deal and we got exactly what we were hoping to get from the sale. Complete win-win for both parties. Now we have cash-in-hand {or rather the bank} to pay down the debt on the minivan. It will be paid off by January! We are on a roll!! It feels good to see debt disappear.
