My family has paid down nearly $10,000 in 6 months. I should be proud of our accomplishment, right? Then why do still feel so bogged down & burdened? I know why. It is because our 6 month adventure is actually a 10 month journey mimicked the rolling of the sea. Up, down, up, downâ€¦ Yet, all I want to make it do is go down!
This proves tough with a family of four with one teenager. Or with the family that wants to embark for Hawaii next spring break but isn’t taking the steps to make it happen (they just think it will happen). Or the family that doesn’t realize the cost impact of everything we spend on (dinner, landscaping projects, birthday parties, etcâ€¦). Oh, I am to blame in this family of four, too. Don’t think I am excluding myself in this momentary blah.
I need help. I need your advice.
- How do you get a family of four to see the financial impacts of your debt repayment program?
- How do you get a family of four to come together and realize we still have $79,768.59 to still pay down?
- How do you continue to feel like you are living a life while staying frugal as can be to become debt free?
This is the new importance of my blog right? Learning to overcome the consumer society lifestyle in order to become debt free (and maintain that status). And although I am up for the challenge I need your guidance, tips, and/or advice. I look forward to your enlightening responses to help me regroup my debt repayment journey.
