  • How much DEBT did we pay off in January 2016?!

    Why is it necessary for most of us to have a new year or a new month or even a new week to get motivated to reach our goals? It is such a mental game. Why can’t starting on a Tuesday or starting on January 30th be just as a good of a start? Well, I […]

  • 2016 Financial Goals

    Hello there! First month of 2016 is almost done! Have you stuck to your resolutions? If not, you can always start again! I planned on making some goals (outside of Financial Goals) for the year, but still haven’t gotten around to writing them on paper. However, I do have our Financial Goals for this year […]

  • How much DEBT did we pay off in 2015? Did we reach our goals?

    Wow! I can’t believe it has been a year since we decided to tackle our debt.  I remember saying that if for some reason at the end of the year we were back to our old spending habits then we wouldn’t continue this. We stopped all money going towards savings and retirement to pay off […]

  • How much DEBT did we pay off in July?

    For some reason I haven’t had any motivation to write a post lately. I think it gave me something to do while my husband, Cory was deployed (I got tired of referring to him as just my husband so now you know, his name is Cory.)  Anyway, now that he is back, my time is […]

  • How much DEBT did we pay off in June?

      I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July! I didn’t do anything too citing  but I was quite productive around the house and got to celebrate the 4th at a going away party! It is almost half way through summer and I feel like I haven’t really enjoyed it yet. We missed celebrating my husband’s […]
