That knowledge led to pay off $5,000+ in credit card debt and $22,000+ in student loans since starting this blog. I’m current debt free as of August 2013 thanks to using ReadyForZero and persistently paying off debt.
I’m still figuring money out. There is a ton to learn and I’m dedicated to finding out how to use my money wisely and prepare for the future. Since starting I’ve learned how to properly use credit cards, manage my money and plan for the future. So far, so good.
This blog is my personal journey in eliminating debt and finding financial independence one step at a time. I hope to find my own way as well as inspire others to figure out their money and reach a place of financial security.
about this site:
This is a personal finance blog. All posts will somehow be related to my finances and how they affect my every day life. I won’t be posting a ton of “how to” stuff because I’m learning, not teaching. There are lots of awesome websites and blogs out there that can give you that information. Here you will just find one journey to financial independence.
This blog was created as a place to write about money issues in depth, beyond what I’m comfortable discussing in blogs that friends and family read. You might know who I am, but please don’t disclose it (just email me). Only a select few know about this blog and I like to keep it that way so I have a space to write openly about my finances.

I am not a financial adviser. I am not a money expert. In fact, I barely know anything about personal finance – but I’m learning. Please don’t make financial decisions based off of my blog.
