A couple years ago we realized we had been buying and buying but never letting go. Also we knew we were in debt but had no plan to pay it off. January 2010 we implemented a three year debt repayment schedule and a new (like we ever had one before) budget. We have been using up extra items (who needs 20 different hair products) and shredding papers (why was I saving that bill for mustard from 2005).We’ve had annual garage sales, given furniture to family and friends, even put things outside with a sign that says free. We got rid of our coffee maker and toaster and havent regretted it yet. Now it’s time for some serious decisions. Is it necessary to have at least 3 sizes of poultry roasters? If books are available from libraries should I clutter my shelves with them?
On my new blog I will be talking about our families journey to debt free forever and how we would like to live more minimally (less junk). Please join me.
For now I will leave it at that and add some more soon!
