Here's the introductions...

So by the name, you can guess that I am in *awkward cough* in debt - a lot of debt. This is why I decided to create this blog in hopes of tracking my journey out of debt and asking you the reader to help me to stay accountable.

Let’s air the dirty laundry shall we?

To be blunt, I have a good deal of what Dave Ramsey would call “Stupid Tax” (i.e. buying things that I thought were “needs” but in all actuality were not). Here is the damage:

Student Loan:$10,990.36
Credit Card #1: $7,834.32
Car Loan: $6,788.72
Credit Card #2: $4,797.15
Credit Card #3: $1,349.36
Bank Loan: $1,177.62
Non-profit Pledge: $900.00
Credit Card #4: 0 - need to cancel

Grand Total: $33,837.53

And this is how I feel when I see that bottom line:


  1. I'm going to enjoy reading your blog too! It's nice to see someone else over their heads in debt...well, not nice because I am glad you have debt, but nice to not be alone in the freedom journey! :)

  2. Thank you! We'll get out of this hole together. :)
