The Sure-Fire Way to Get out Of Debt!

In January of 2013 we got sick and tired of being sick and tired and decided we would do whatever was necessary to get out of debt.  By this time next year we should be debt free having paid back about $90K of debt/loans.  One of the ways is selling on Ebay!!!

Anyway, I heard someone on the radio talking about this Steve Martin video and watched it.  It is hilarious.

It’s common sense, yet many of us are so used to buying stuff with credit cards and then not being able to pay off the balance before you are hit with interest charges.

If you haven’t yet, take a couple of minutes to read my post about how Your Dollars Are Your Employees.  How every dollar you spend on stupid and unnecessary stuff today, or give away in interest payments, is one less employee that you have making money for you in the future.  See, we’d rather have our money working for us today (okay, start working for us next year), so that we don’t have to in the future.  Wouldn’t you?

Today I’m sharing this post on Living Well Spending Less and Simple Lives Thursday.


    1. It is simple, but we as a society, have been programmed otherwise. It’s been 1.5 years since we’ve used credit cards and I love it! They are not making any more money on me! 🙂

  1. Great post and video.

    There was a good story on NPR the other day about a new generation of people who can’t afford to retire. People in their sixties and seventies who can’t afford to live on their social security. They travel the nation in RVs like migrant workers. Working seasonal jobs. Those dollars we fritter away today on stuff we don’t need or interest payments are very important so we don’t end up like the people on NPR.

    1. Right on Nancy! If you keep your eyes open, you will see elderly people working everywhere…they should be enjoying their retirement, but instead are working because they’ve never saved anything and can’t make it on social security. It is very sad. Have you heard of tent cities? They are popping up everywhere too. Cities where people live in tents as they can’t afford anything else. It’s sad. People take time to plan their yearly vacations, but most don’t consider or make a plan for the future!

        1. I have heard of people in their retirement forced to live in tent cities not being able to afford a place to live after the real estate market crash (unfortunately, some people were refinancing their houses at 125% of the value of their homes and then foreclosing on their houses, etc. Even those in retirement. And others who choose to live there by choice as well.

    1. Hi Donna, I was actually listening to a Dave Ramsey show when a couple came in to do their debt free scream and they are the ones that mentioned it. Maybe it was one of your students!!! 🙂
