For a few months now, I have been seriously thinking about how D and I can get out of debt. I’ve talked to lots of friends and family about it, committed to not putting a single thing on credit card, and worked out a budget that would allow us to be out of credit card debt in the next year or so. Several people I talked to mentioned Dave Ramsey and his total money makeover. On Monday, I checked the book from the library. Today, we sold our van. My lovely, wonderful, spacious, new van with the glorious automatic sliding doors. Maybe it’s a little crazy, but we wiped out $7,000 of debt with that move and cut our car payment nearly in half. We will be out of credit card debt in 8 months, and will have our new old car paid off within two years. Exciting stuff I tell ya! It actually feels really good. Dave Ramsey’s book is SO inspiring. I highly recommend it!
