Jenn, that is beyond cool! I remember how incredibly happy I was to see that 2 disappear after 20 years of living with it. And that's when I discovered I had bones in my shoulder... LOL!
On the savings front, once your fridge, etc. is paid off, you could check with your bank if there's a way of getting an automatic withdrawal in place to go straight into a mutual fund or guaranteed investment certificates (or whatever you call them in the States). Your banking system is so different in the States, I'm not sure what the options are. The goal is to make the savings automatic, to reduce the dependence on a conscious decision every month. If you time it to come out right after paychecks and stop doing discretionary purchases on credit, that could be very helpful.
Still and all, it's nice to see that you're making good progress in so many ways. Keep it up!

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
