Welcome to Freaking Awesome Friday! It is a weekly update on anything that I found a great deal on, a new app, a new trick, whatever I have learned in that week that was Freaking Awesome!
For some, discussing debt and how to pay it off can cause sadness and depression. It can serve as a reminder of the mistakes that have been made that put you in the hole you’re currently in. Often, this can act as a huge obstacle in remaining positive. Remember, you didn’t fall into debt overnight, and you will not get out of debt overnight. It is important to think small, set goals, and celebrate the little wins along the way. It is the little accomplishments that have helped me so far through my debt free journey. The little wins keep me positive and charging towards our goal of being debt free! Big or little, overcoming those challenges is the best feeling!
So for my first Freaking Awesome Friday, I am going to put the spotlight on my wonderful boyfriend. He not only ran the Shamrock Shuffle 8K, he also approached his employer and was able to pick up a couple of weekend shifts for extra money! I am so happy that he has taken the initiative to conquer our debt by working SEVEN days a week for the foreseeable future.
Because he will be working those extra hours, we will increase our take home pay which will then increase the amount of money we can put towards our debt every month by up to 50%! The additional income will all go towards paying off our credit card debt until the dreaded student loans kick in come September!
What a Freaking Awesome Friday! I can’t wait to share with you everything that I am learning here as well as highlight the positivity! Have an amazing weekend everyone!
