I’m so excited! About 12-24 months ago, I had put a $500 car repair on a credit card,
started paying it down a little bit, then graduation rolled around and I didn’t save up
for graduation so I had to put those expenses on a credit card. The balance had been
plaguing me month after month after month. Well—NOT ANYMORE! A couple of days
ago, I paid off this credit card and I just feel so FREE! That’s another Harvey coming
out of the Financial Matrix. We’re doing it as a family. It is difficult to be different and
to be disciplined, but it is TOTALLY worth it to be chipping away at my debt. I have a plan to be out of the
Financial Matrix within the next couple of years (before I’m 30) and I am so excited!! I don’t even know
how to express this because it is not the norm for my family.
At first we started going through the Financial Fitness Program principles loosely and we never recorded any of our results. But, eventually we decided to get completely and fully committed to the Financial Fitness Program and we found that we had $426 a month that the ‘Green Box’ saved us from spending. That monthly savings doesn't even include the amount of money that Alicia and I saved when we switched from eating fast food to actually buying groceries and meal planning at home. That number may be close to $700+ saved monthly, but we haven't crunched those numbers yet. Basically that $426 was wasteful spending outside of our meals. Now we have a testimony that we can share with others!
