  1. Sounds like a fun post will check it out. Thanks

  2. Excited to hear you’re over there today, Kim! Can’t wait to read it. 🙂

  3. Awesome, heading over now to read the post!

  4. That was a good article.

    One of your main points is that you have to be emotionally ready to cut down debt. You said “The problem with having a laser focus for the short term is that it’s not sustainable without the emotional maturity to make it stick for life.” This is very true. In my case, I cannot remember now what made things click in my mind. I just remember that one day it just became emotionally unacceptable to me to be carrying the debt and be paying interest on it.

    I used the “snowball” approach to eliminating my debt. Paid the monthly minimum on all accounts while throwing all the money I could at the smallest balance. Wipe one out and move up the line. That has the very valuable reinforcing effect of letting you taste victory every time an account gets zeroed out.

  5. To do it like a boss sounds very interesting and is the way, Kim. I enjoyed reading your article on Frugalwoods’ site.

  6. Great post over there. I am only 481 days away from retirement! At a cash flow greater than when I was working.

    Rentals are one of the few high-yield investments that work, but you still need a solid tenant.

  7. Debt consolidation can be a great way to get rid of the student loans as well– of course, when you are relying on reliable debt specialists!
