2011 Year End Debt Review

In August of 2010, Tommy and I took a class at church called "Common Cents".  It was basically a starter course on budgeting, etc.  At the end of the class, we were given Dave Ramsey's book, Total Money Makeover.

And although we are not "gazelle intense", we have worked hard to get our crazy debt paid down.  In honor of the new year, I wanted to give an update that will hopefully continue to motivate us in 2012!

In case you were wondering, this has honestly changed our lives!

In 17 months, we have paid off $16,101.97 in real debt!  Yay!

Happy New Year Y'all!
