Money

Not sure how many people care, but after years of paying off debt and trying to bring my consumer habits under control my simple net worth finally went positive. The total amount of cash I have on hand is a few hundred dollars greater than my total amount of debt.

Is it better to be broke and debt free or have a small amount of debt and some savings? Currently my plan for my last bit of debt was to spend a month saving money, followed by a month of making larger payments to my student loan.

Also I got a few percent raise due to the joy of automatic cost of living increases

And once I'm debt free in 6 months or so. what to do... a trip to Europe, buy a flat screen monitor, switch to solar power, start an intentional community, or just save money obsessively and quit working sooner? So many good choices...
