A Great Book



This is such a great read. Ben's parents gave this book to all of their kids. I just finished it this week. This book helps you learn how to budget and to pay off your debt so fast and teach you and make you realize you can't afford to be in debt the rest of your life. Since we've been married we have never had to live on a budget until NOW! :) Lol. This book gets you all fired up in paying everything off. If we go the way we're going right now we'll have everything paid for (pretty much student loans) in 3-4 years. But as we get better with our budget we're hoping in 2 years. I know a few more of the Kearns have gotten the total money makeover itch as well. I suggest everyone read this. It makes everything seem so simple and easy and makes you realize how ridiculous it is to finance or borrow for things.

ADDICTED to this book! I loved it! We postponed our Italy trip (for our 10 yr wedding anniversary this yr) in order to become more "Gazelle" intense at paying off our law school debt. I always thought that because we had no consumer credit card debt we were doing just great. Now I am realizing that it is more about a lifestyle change that really helps change your focus and gain freedom. We haven't arrived at the station yet, but we are enjoying the journey as we pay off more & more. Our cars and my college loans and some of Marc's Private law school loans will be paid off this year! Can't wait! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

Love you!

Hey, Tyler loves that book too. Living with my hubby, he was always in the mode of "Let's pay everything off" including our house. I can't tell you the comfort that it gives to know you don't have any debt. LOVE IT

That looks like a way good book. We have no debt now but we'll have to buy a house someday! Oh, and fill up our cars with gas sometime too, that'll be about enough to put us in debt I think.
