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!!
I just want to say that the Financial Fitness Program is amazing. Because of this
information, last year, in December, it was the first time that we paid for all of our
Christmas presents in cash. And right now, I’m on my way to the bank to pay off
$5,000. I’m so thrilled that we were able to implement all of the principles into our daily
routine, and I’m so excited because I’m one step closer to paying off all of our debt!
