Getting out of debt, a survivors guide.

The 10 Key Actions That Finally Got Me Out of Debt; or, Why Living Frugally is Only Part of the Solution | Zen Habits

I finally got out of debt about a year ago and I still love reading how other people have done it.  Not only is living debt free an important lifestyle both individually and for the family but I don’t think we’ll ever be able to hold our elected officials fiscally accountable until we can manage to hold ourselves to the same standard.

The best thing ever did for myself was to build an emergency savings.  Suddenly I was no longer living paycheck to paycheck, and with my head finally out of the water I was able to correct the errors of my former 19 year old self.  I’m glad I learned my lesson young, I see people in their thirties and forties falling into the same pitfalls.
