At first we started going through the Financial Fitness Program principles loosely and we never recorded any of our results. But, eventually we decided to get completely and fully committed to the Financial Fitness Program and we found that we had $426 a month that the ‘Green Box’ saved us from spending. That monthly savings doesn't even include the amount of money that Alicia and I saved when we switched from eating fast food to actually buying groceries and meal planning at home. That number may be close to $700+ saved monthly, but we haven't crunched those numbers yet. Basically that $426 was wasteful spending outside of our meals. Now we have a testimony that we can share with others!
I wanted to provide some inspiration to people. I started my journey by reading the book in the Financial Fitness Program and putting the principles into practice and was able to pay off $28K of debt. I am so thankful for this program. You just do what you have to do. I had no extra room in my budget but I was still able to find a way to pay off this debt. I hope this inspires others to take the next step. Don’t give up. Don’t stop. Just get yourself free!
