Debt Update March 2012

As a recap, in July 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.  Below is an update of how we are doing.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, this has honestly changed our lives!

August 1, 2010 Total Debt Balance
(excluding the house)
$41,704.45

March 31, 2012 Total Debt Balance
(excluding the house)
$21,495.25

In 20 months, we have paid off $20,209.20 in real debt and we are almost half way done! The awesome thing is that as we continue to snowball, the debt goes away faster and faster.  Yay!

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful Spring and that the pollen doesn't have your allergies all crazy like mine!
