31 Day Towards Financial Freedom!

Friday, September 30, 2011

"The Nester" is doing a 31 days series along with these fabulous ladies.  This series is starting on October 1st and will run until October 31st.  They have invited other blogs to participate and I have decided that I will give it a shot :-)

I have decided to do my series on "31 Days Towards Financial Freedom."  My husband and I have completely changed our financial ways once reading and listening to Dave Ramsey.  We have been following "The Total Money Makeover" and it has changed our life dramatically! 

The Total Money Makeover forum is actually where I first fell in love with the DIY blog world.  I found a post recommending Thrifty Decor Chick and from then on I was obsessed interested in DIY and decorating. 

I thought there was no way I could decorate our house the way I had hoped because it wouldn't work with our budget.  Little did I know that not only could decorate on a budget, but that I would actually like the free/cheap items better!  I have had much more fun to personalizing my home by making the things I like, instead of purchasing the high end decor that looks the same as everyone else's.

I hope that you will join me for the next 31 days to hear some of my favorite money saving ideas!

Indeed! There is so much freedom when one is debt free...even if we had to go all summer without AC as ours broke and we didn't have cash to replace it. So we save...
