After I graduated from college, I had over $32,000 of student loan debt, $3,000 of
credit card debt and zero money in savings. I started the Financial Fitness Program
and have since gotten rid of the credit card debt, learned to pay myself first and I am
on track to paying off all my student loan debt in the next 2 years. Thank you to the
Financial Fitness Program for getting me on track to a better future.
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!!
