Long Story Short
My husband and I both went to college and both accrued student loan debt… a lot of it. We are fed up with thinking it will be impossible to pay off any time soon. I recently heard about Dave Ramsey’s book “The Total Money Makeover.” I read it within days and was convinced we weren’t trapped forever like we thought. While driving home for Christmas, I was able to convince my husband that we can get rid of this debt… we just need to change our lifestyle for a little bit.
Purpose of the blog
While trying to fall asleep one night during our Christmas vacation, I had the brilliant idea of creating a blog for this journey. After doing some research, I found that a lot of people had the SAME brilliant idea. Who woulda thunk? 😉 Reading about other successful stories only further motivated me.
The purpose of my blog is to not only hold myself and my husband financially accountable but more importantly, help inspire others who think they are trapped. I plan to put all of our personal finances out in the open. You can expect monthly budgets, goals, progress reports, etc.
With that being said, it is officially time to get started on our journey to financial freedom! Just talking about the thought of being financially free gets me all giddy inside. I can’t imagine what it will feel like when we actually accomplish our goals! Thats right, I said ‘when’… not ‘if’ we accomplish our goals. I can’t wait to look back and say “Debt, Who?”
We are asking for support, feedback, inspiration, and advice from all of our family and friends. So please join as we take on the challenge of becoming debt free!
