Those of you on any form of social media or group chat with me, you probably know by now that Tom and I got to do our “Debt Free Scream” this past Thursday.
We began our budget for February a few weeks ago, I told Tom that I think we were going to be able to pay off the last of our debt. You know what? He cried. Sobbing mess. No, not really. But we both got teary-eyed and took a moment to think about what in the world “debt free” would actually mean for us. We were toward being debt free for so long that the actual thought of it happening wasn’t something that had crossed our minds.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again, the day I got comfortable talking to my husband about our finances, was one of the biggest sighs of relief of my life. For years we went to church and listened to them talk about some of the best Dave Ramsey methods to payoff debt. When we finally buckled down and gave it a go, we were surprised at just how easy it was. We have implemented budgets, get out of debt strategies, and better ways to save. I have included easy to follow printouts in my Fun Sized Budget Bundle on all the methods we use to keep our finances on track, so you can take full advantage of these practices as well. Right now I’ll show you how the debt snowball helped us pay off $6,000 of debt in only 6 months!
