At first we started going through the Financial Fitness Program principles loosely and we never recorded any of our results. But, eventually we decided to get completely and fully committed to the Financial Fitness Program and we found that we had $426 a month that the ‘Green Box’ saved us from spending. That monthly savings doesn't even include the amount of money that Alicia and I saved when we switched from eating fast food to actually buying groceries and meal planning at home. That number may be close to $700+ saved monthly, but we haven't crunched those numbers yet. Basically that $426 was wasteful spending outside of our meals. Now we have a testimony that we can share with others!
I am so stinking excited about this Green Box!!! It has changed everything in our lives! When we were introduced to the Financial Fitness Program, we were in graduate school and running head-long into the Financial Matrix. The very thing the Green Box did for us was stop us in our tracks, and we haven't accrued anymore debt since- which is FIRED UP! Then we learned how to pay less in taxes, invest in ourselves, and give ourselves a 30% raise at work!! Then, in 7 weeks time, we have one months worth of savings and have paid off over $10,000 of debt!!! This is only the beginning for the Smith family. The Green Box revolution has just begun.
