I have been reading Dave's book, Total Money Makeover. I even began my first ever budget. I am using the envelope system and I am so excited! I've been using cash and let me tell you, I don't seem to spend as quickly as I did before. I also am excited to see what is left over at the end of the month to put towards my debt. This summer, I also took on a few tutoring jobs. In the past, I used to tutor a lot more, but kind of let it go. However, this summer, I am trying to use all of this money towards paying back one of my loans faster. Plus, the change that accumulates is going to go towards building wells in Africa. So excited about giving this money away. What a weird concept...giving it away and receiving absolutely nothing back...and still feeling joyous about it. Will update you on the debt snowball as it continues to be smaller and smaller!!!
