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!!
Since the Green Box came into our lives, we have eliminated over $384,000 in debt. We had debt from a motorcycle, leased car, auto loans, personal loans, law suit, credit cards, time share, and two home mortgages! By applying the principles of the green box/Financial Fitness Program, we are down to two debts to pay off and then we will be 100% financially free. But with all we’ve eliminated so far, we are well on our way to being out of the Financial Matrix for good.
