My husband DJ and I really started applying the principles of the Financial Fitness
Program in November of 2014. We started our debt snowball by selling a costly truck
and purchasing an old van for cash and applying that payment to the snowball. Then,
we decided to ramp things up and we sold a rental home and a duplex that we owned.
Using the equity from that, we paid off about $230,000 worth of debt and have the
lowest monthly expenses we have ever had in our marriage. We also have two months
of expenses saved up. Unfortunately, we still have a student loan and a credit card left, but with the
money and knowledge we now have, those debts will be gone before we know it!!
I wanted to provide some inspiration to people. I started my journey by reading the book in the Financial Fitness Program and putting the principles into practice and was able to pay off $28K of debt. I am so thankful for this program. You just do what you have to do. I had no extra room in my budget but I was still able to find a way to pay off this debt. I hope this inspires others to take the next step. Don’t give up. Don’t stop. Just get yourself free!
