Ahhh... Another successful debt reduction month!
Seriously, we are pretty excited to see progress again. It has brought in topics of freedom in finances and of being able to put our money into more exciting pots....like retirement....wait....what?! Not exciting for you? Ya me neither... But for my hubby it gives him a piece of mind and that's worth it and a few years down the road it'll give me a piece of mind too.
Now we get to think of saving money for a car, house updates, family vacations, and even a bit of regular SPLURGE money. I have to tell you, Dave's way says to try and include splurge money into your monthly budget all the time but we didn't follow that advice because we just really wanted debt gone and didn't like the guilt of spending on ourselves every month at least until we got past our huge school debt.
Now, we are excited to put it back into the budget! We have been planning out our big Mickey vacation and it's so exciting to see a bright light at the end of the tunnel!

**As a family we decided to change our lives by paying off debt. We needed motivation to keep us going. This Epic Mickey represents how much debt we owe. Each filled in square represents a dollar amount paid off. Once the entire Mickey is filled in, we will be debt free besides our home. Then we'll party in style with Disney to celebrate! We have included a monthly plan to have the savings set aside to pay for the trip too so we won't be back tracking just to celebrate. Take the journey with us as we share tips and tricks to save money, generate more money, free ourselves from the chains of debt and create a better future for our family and yours!
