After graduating college in December 2013, I was over $23,000 in debt, thanks to student loans, a car, and one maxed-out credit card. In May 2014, I began Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and slowly began changing my financial future. I did my first round of debt snowballing when I was a single 22 year old. The snowball was paused when Andy (my now-husband) and I got engaged, so we could save for our wedding, honeymoon, and newlywed life. In September 2016, we resumed our snowball. In November 2017, we finally became debt-free!! In the end, we paid off a combined $35,000 of debt over 3.5 years. Below are the blog posts I wrote, chronicling our journey towards debt freedom!
