I didn't own a home at the time but had a car payment so I said the car loan was my most important debt. He looked me in the eye and said, wrong!!!! The most important person you owe money to is yourself. After I thought about it, he was right. I set up an automatic deduction from my paychech every week to go into a savings account I don't touch. It has taken some willpower to leave it alone but after some time I just don't even think about it very often. It has been over 25 years now and it will be a nice chunk of change when I start drawing my pension.
Savings accounts are paying 0.5% or less . Inflation is 5% +.
You Lose.

And you misspelled paycheck !
