Living a minimalist life often means you’ve let go of things that no longer get frequently used. What can really pose a problem is those few times a year when you could really use a certain appliance or piece of equipment. Things like carpet shampooers, KitchenAid mixers or camping equipment are things you may want to use only once a year.

You could borrow from a friend, but there is a new trend starting that might make things even easier. Renting equipment. This new trend is catching on and spreading like wildfire. See how you can get started renting equipment and making a profit from the things you are barely using!

Hi folks, I’m Renee and I am a recovering spend-a-holic. My husband Tom and I have paid off over $90,000 of debt in the last 7 years and I wish I could say there were major student loans in there, but there weren’t. We just sucked that much at managing our money. We downsized our house 3 years ago (check out the full story) and then we got seriously intentional about paying off our debt. Using the Dave Ramsey Debt Snowball we paid off $6,000 in 6 months. Now we are able to see the finish line of our debt that seems never ending and I wanted to share with you the total truth about how I really feel about debt payoff after 3 intentional years.
