    For the last 6-8 years I've lived to work, now I'm debt free and have no commitments I need to start working to live!

    I need a plan....I need a goal.

    Get my own place? Go travelling? New car? New job? I just dont know! I am in limbo now and feel a little lost! :eek:

    Gosh being debt free is a major achievement! well done there! (I am working towards that plan too & it's a long old road) You're right - start enjoying life & doing what you're going to enjoy you deserve it. Being a slave to money is really sh*t.

    Well instead of travelling the world, how about with each weeks holiday, you just go and discover a part of europe.
    A week in the ffiords
    A week in the black forest in Germany
    You get the gist, no need to be totally touristy. :D

    First of all congrats on being debt free :D

    Secondly I would draw up a plan for what is really important to you and I mean important to you at the moment not 5, 10, 15 years down the line.

    So if buying your own place is important now then put all efforts into that (remember unless you are happy to rent your new abode out if you want to go travelling in the future, having your own place can be a tie). Or if you really want to change jobs/further your career I would look to do that first or if getting a new motor is what you want then go for that.

    Basically what I'm trying to say is, although you have lots of options to choose from now you are no longer saddled by debt, you need to really whittle it down to what is most important to you, otherwise you will be going round in circles and unable to make any decision.
