After a little over a year and a half of applying the Financial Fitness principles into
our lives, we have paid off over $70,000 in debt, reduced our monthly expenses by
$1,000, and put 4 months of living expenses in the bank. This information has not only
changed our finances; it has changed every aspect of our lives for the better. We are
so thankful and blessed to have Financial Fitness in our lives.
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!!
