This is true in my case. I'm aggressively attacking some debt of mine that is a few years old. Right now being debt free is more important than saving lots of money.
Mee Tooo. I had raked up some debt from being unemployed since the last layoff, and started paying it off now that I'm working. It's unbelievable how much money I was spening a month juts on finance charges and interest. Get debt free as fast as you can!! For the money I was spending on interest, I could easily justify buying a milling machine and paying that off in 2 or 3 years.
Mmmm, milling machine (said with Homer Simpson's "Mmmm... Donuts" voice)
