Ultimate Blog Party 2012


It’s Baaaaaack!!! My favorite time of year is here where I grab a cup of coffee and discover a bunch of new blogs written by wonderful women!

Once again, there are a TON of prizes being offered. I haven’t won anything, yet, but maybe this is my year! {*fingers and toes crossed*}

On my blog I write about finances. I don’t get too fancy, because I’m not that smart. I just pass on infortmation that I have learned.

I also like to participate in monthly challenges that my good friend Christie puts on her blog Bushel and a Peck. This month I’m in the midst of a 30 Days of Spring Cleaning. Haven’t been doing as well as I’d like, but I’m trying.

I have been blogging about our family’s financial journey to being debt free since October 2009. We took Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University class and it rocked our world! In his class he mentions that most people who take FPU and become “gazelle intense” become debt free {not including their mortgage} in 18 to 24 months. I didn’t believe him.

But,  IT’S TRUE!!!

After 18 months we managed to pay off all our consumer debt! In the process we began teaching our children that they should avoid debt like the plague! We are breaking the cycle of relying on credit cards and started living on a cash system.

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can keep up with my progress via RSS, Facebook, and Twitter.


Since this is a party I wanted to participate in a GIVEAWAY! (I also wanted to try out Rafflecopter since I’m a programmer and I like stuff like that!)

I’m giving away $10 PayPal Cash! (Who doesn’t like money?!?)
