Frugal Friday has been a really fun series here at Going Beyond. We’ve gotten scores of great tips and been inspired to “live like no one else – so we can live like no one else,” as Dave Ramsey so eloquently says. Your participation each week has turned this into a real conversation about money, saving and reaching our financial goals.
This week, we want to celebrate your success stories. Have you climbed your way out of an “impossible” abyss of debt? Did you pay off student loans, pay down credit cards and sell personal property to get back on track? Did you have a “wake up call” that put you on the path toward frugality, or are you a natural saver? We want to hear your story!
There is nothing like hearing someone else’s story to encourage us to keep on keepin’ on. Maybe your debt story will inspire someone who is sitting in a tough spot and doesn’t know how to get started. If you can remember what it’s like to wade through credit card bills and answer debt collectors’ phone calls, we hope you’ll share your journey to freedom with us. And if you’ve had a chance to scream “I’M DEBT FREE!!!” into the phone on the Dave Ramsey show, we definitely want to hear about that.
