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!!
Looking back over 2016, we’ve paid off over $20K in student loan debt. We are both happy to say that as of January 2017, I’ve paid off my final student loan and I am officially debt free at 26 years old. Thank you for the ‘green box’ - we can’t get enough of it and you won't stop us from sharing it with the world!
