It’s been a while since I’ve given an update on our progress with the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Program. We’re still chipping away at our debt, but I must admit that we haven’t been going with the same gazelle intensity as before.
We had a few unexpected things to come up this summer that required us to modify our debt elimination plan. Right now, we are about 2 months behind on our debt free goal. I’m hoping that we can pick back up and regain gazelle intensity in the fall. The honest truth is that I’m not good with being frugal during the summer time. I like to live a little and do some traveling. And you already know about my love for all things technology and office supply related.
I do have a few good things to report.
Whenever I get change back from purchases (less than $1.00), I put it in a piggy bank. I do the same thing for my husband’s loose change that he leaves lying around. One day, I noticed that there wasn’t enough room for me to put more change in the piggy bank. I took my good ole piggy bank to cash in our coins and guess how much money we had?
That came to a grand total of $112.69!!! We had no idea that there was that much money stuffed in that little piggy bank. Every little bit counts!
We have eliminated 64% of our debt since January 1st. We just have to stay on track and push through to the finish line.
