Total Money Makeover

Randy and I are almost through reading Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. It is such an inspiring book! I really do recommend it to everyone out there. One of Dave's big mottos is that if you are willing to live like no one else, later you will live like no one else. We are on a really tight budget, with little income as it is, but I think if we stick to the principles in the book, we will be a lot happier later. We are already one step ahead by being debt free, and can scrimp and save for other necessities that will come in life.

Some of the things that we need to save for are a down payment on a home, future children, and a new car. Our monthly income is tiny, but I believe in us. That means that we can't spend money on things that we don't need. Even on the little things. I think it's more important to sacrifice now so that we can have a more secure future. So to any of my family and friends reading this, don't be offended if we can't go out to eat, go to the movies, or do some of the other activities that we all enjoy. We are trying to live like no one else, so later, we can live like no one else! Read The Total Money Makeover!!!

  1. I will so be offended if you pass up girls day to see Eclipse! Yes, Randy is invited, too. LOL!

    You know I'm kidding. But I will put this book on hold at the library. I hear it's super good.
