I am so excited about the Financial Fitness Program! We just wrote the final check
for one of our loans and so far in this process, that makes it over $24,000 worth of
consumer debt that we’ve been able to pay off just by applying the principles we’ve
learned. We still have a ways to go, but this has made such a dent in our debtreduction
program! I just want to encourage everybody to stick with it! Even if it’s
inch-by-inch, just by applying these principles, we’re beginning to see that the power
of compounding is working in our favor.
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!
