I suppose that makes it sound like we are in debt up to our ears, but we really aren’t. We are going to finish paying Dan’s school loan off this year and then we will only have our house left. We just want to be done with debt. In this day and age it’s hard to live without ANY debt if you want to live in a house. That is one type of debt that most people have. We just feel that getting out of debt is something we are really looking forward to and something we really WANT to do. My grandparents and parents live simple lives and do not live outside their means – they have been amazing examples to us! They showed me that you do not need to have the latest and greatest thing in order to be “happy.” Growing up, I see how many family functions we had and how money was NEVER talked about. It didn’t need to be. The simple life was what was central. Dan and I both look forward to the day when we don’t have debt hanging over our heads :). We want to live in such a way that if there is a need financially or whatever, we can contribute. We have been blessed and we want to turn around and do the same!
Getting out of debt!
