I graduated architecture school in 2012 with approximately $24,000.00 in student loans. Not knowing any better, I financed a car a year later and ended up with a total of $40,000.00 in debt at the end of 2013. Soon after, I was introduced to The Total Money Makeover book by Dave Ramsey and it completely changed my view on personal finance. It was after reading this book that I decided to stop borrowing money and started to focus on paying off everything I owed.
I am halfway through my journey and have learned so much throughout the process. As of October 2017, I am officially DEBT-FREE!!
Through this blog, I hope to encourage others to become debt-free by
tracking my debt-free progress and sharing tips for living a debt-free life.
On this blog you will find:
My personal finance posts which will cover everything I’ve learned in the personal finance realm along with posts where I share my debt payoff progress.
My lifestyle posts will cover more of my everyday life. I see these posts as a way to introduce myself to my readers. As much as I love blogs concentrating on one specific topic only. I feel like I still like to know the person behind the blog too.
