I have started this blog to help my husband and I stay accountable in our goal to become debt free by the spring of 2010. We have been working strongly already on lowering our regular bills in order to strengthen our snowball. Yes, we are Dave Ramsey fans.
I have been reading many debt blogs over the past few months and have decided this might be a fun way to get feedback from others. Kind of cool that we can have a community of online of support without showing our faces!
We plan to set a New Years Revolution on certain debts being put away. I don't have all the numbers, but I would say we are in debt around $35,000. May be a little less, may be a little more. $20,000 is in car payments, 7,000 in a student loan, around $3,000 in credit card, and $4,000 to the grandparents. I will set up widget shortly showing our actual amounts, goals and our measly savings. I plan to post our budgets which we do biweekly. We like to do them for each paycheck which is every other week as opposed to monthly goals. Our income is around $75,000. My husband works for a secure job dealing with database and I am a homemaker and homeschooling mom to 4 boys.
So keep checking back for more and more updates, goals, aspirations, questions and whatever else I can come up with relating to our goal of a living like no one else!
