From Princess to Money Maven
Posted by John | Filed under Uncategorized
Just want to say THANK YOU for making managing money exciting and attractive. I used to watch “What Not to Wear” and look at all the fabulous clothes I didn’t have and felt I could never have, and sigh in great discontent that I was saddled with $96,000 in student loans and consumer debt. Yes, that much. I cannot tell you how depressed it made me feel to look at the bills every month.
Now I watch Till Debt Do Us Part and my VERY favourite, Princess, and think about how I have turned into a Money Maven. (It feels so GOOD to say that!!!) In less than 4 years I have shrunk my debt to less than $24,000 and it will be gone by the end of this year. I have worked my little butt off! Just this morning I finished paying back my consolidation loan. That made me feel utterly FANTASTIC!
So, starting next year, I will have ZERO DEBT next to my mortgage, and will be starting a wonderful new chapter in my life of living in the black and feeling as free as a bird. I’m already looking into investment properties as a new goal to set for the year ahead.
