It seems like I just shared our Penny Pinchin’ Mom Debt Free / Savings Challenge for 2011. During the year I shared a tips, personal stories and ways to help you all work yourselves out of debt. I know it has been a tough road for so many of you, but I am proud of you! You survived it and are smarter and more financially savvy (or so I hope)! During the year, I asked those of you who wanted to, to share how much debt you had paid off throughout the year. I am so proud to announce that all of you collectively eliminated:
$347,190.66 — WOW!!!!!!!!
I just still can’t believe you all did that amazingly well!! This was a new feature which I thought might help a few of you and to see that amount of debt paid off in just 12 months is just so astounding. I applaud you for your hard work and dedication!!
Now, I was planning on wrapping up the challenge by sharing how much you all paid off and then calling it closed. However, I have a lot of feedback from many of you asking me to help again for 2012. So, I’m pleased to announce that we will start again soon! If you are new to the site, or if your are ready to begin a journey to a debt free life, then you will love what we’ve got in store. I will share all of the steps that my family followed (via Dave Ramsey’s Financial Money Makeover) in order to eliminate our debt. It will require a lot of tears, sweat, handwork…and did I mention tears? It will NOT be easy — but then again– nothing in life worth having is ever easy.
So, if you are ready to truly change your financial destiny, then you’ll want to join us as we start a new year with new financial goals. With the steps and support of other readers, you CAN do this! I know you can!!!
