Over the past month we have listened to the Financial Fitness audios and because
of what we are learning, we understand how to prioritize our finances and to get them
under control. We applied what we were hearing and were able to save about $17,000
this month in our budget. We have been able to get out from underneath that money
just by applying what Financial Fitness has helped us understand.
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!!
