On another note, you will see on the sidebar that I've stolen another idea. This time from Today in Dietzville. She and I are both working (with our husbands' leading, obviously) on getting out of debt and she put up her debt owed and debt paid amounts...LOVE how bold that is. However, I also realize that several people will be encouraged by seeing that it CAN be done - SO, I've done the same!
As of today, we have $10,550 left in consumer debt and $44,000 left in Student Loan debt. Considering that we started with $32,746 in debt just over 15 months ago, I'm thinking we've done pretty well! At this rate, we'll be out of debt (not including student loans) by December or January...dependent upon a few circumstances! We'll tackle our student loans after that - SO, conceivably, we COULD be completely out of debt except for our house by the time we're 30!!! Thomas has done an incredible job of keeping us on track with spreadsheets/charts/graphs, etc. But, we don't spend a dime without the other knowing about it and we're using our envelope system to keep us accountable! It can be done - you CAN win with money!!!
