Live like no one else.

So, if any of you have spent any time around me or over here on the blog, you know that I love me some Dave Ramsey.

He is smart.
He loves Jesus.
He tells it like it is.

You probably remember my post a few weeks back about our goal to become financially fit.  We are still working the Debt Snowball plan and as the weeks have gone on, we have become more and more "gazelle intense" (another Ramsey reference).  

In fact, over the last two weeks, we have worked and reworked the budget.  

We have made choices about what to eat and necessities vs. non-necessities daily.

We have made the decision to sell two of our three vehicles and move to a much cheaper, yet reliable vehicle. (Sidenote: This is a big deal.  We are car people.)

But as Ramsey says...
"Live like no one else now, so you can live like no one else later."

We are eating at home, selling our cars, and trying to find other ways to cut every single spare dollar out of the budget, in order to be "gazelle intense" in our quest for debt freedom.

The current debt snowball says we'll be debt-free (except for the house) by December of 2017.  However, we are REALLY pushing and hoping to move that number up to December of 2016.  

It sounds crazy, but once the snowball gets rolling, it picks up momentum and I know we'll have everything paid off in no time.

If you're thinking at all about financial fitness, I would totally recommend "The Total Money Makeover" and "Financial Peace University" by Dave Ramsey, along with his app and website "Every Dollar".

We can do this!  Jump on board and let's live like no one else!
