About Us

BigBenHey!

We are simply a 26 and 28-year-old 28 and 29 year old who found college a priority and did everything we could to ensure we graduated. This meant racking up student loans. Now married, both in the military, and comfortably settled, we are tired of thinking we are trapped under 6 figures of debt.

After reading Dave Ramsey’s “The Total Money Makeover” at the end of 2014, we were convinced we weren’t trapped; we just needed to make a lifestyle change. The purpose of the blog is to keep us financially accountable and to help inspire others! In January 2015, we changed our spending habits and have been living a semi-frugal lifestyle in order to tackle our debt.

At the end of 2015 we moved to Italy! So now we are learning to travel on a budget in order to enjoy this experience and still pay off our debt!

The journey has been one heck of a ride thus far, but we sure are excited to look back and ask “Debt, Who?”
