Debt Freedom Series: The Celebration Begins
Once upon a time I (John) got myself into some pretty serious debt.
$65,000 to be approximately exact.
So when I went to get married and my future father in law challenged me to get out of debt in less than 5 years I was overwhelmed. Of course, marrying Lee Anne has been the best thing for me, learning how to handle money.
This is a series about the last steps towards our Debt Freedom, each time we fill in a letter we get closer to…
“FREE AT LAST!!!”
Today we begin with F. Getting to fill in the first letter after Lee Anne made this banner was AMAZING, just a few years ago I was paying and paying without making any progress on my debt freedom journey and now? So much progress we can count the months on our fingers (and a couple toes). One of the biggest parts of paying off debt is reminding yourself that this won’t last forever, you can be debt free and you can change your lifestyle to enjoy financial freedom so you will never be burdened with debt again.
DON’T GIVE UP
Fun Fact: We started with much debt and little time, but now debt freedom is going to be closer to 3 years!
Fun Fact: It took 5 years to get a BS college degree for a career I didn’t/don’t plan to have.
Fun Fact: We have begun living simply and enjoying more of the less we have.
Today is day F of our debt freedom journey. Soak up the fun and freedom!
