The Debt Breakup – Breaking up with $14, 774.12

Hey! Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to my little blog about a big goal. Breaking up with debt.

$14,774.12 worth of debt to be exact.

Every wearisome,  restricting, suffocating relationship should come to an end – and it’s time to end mine. With DEBT. Like the majority of ‘let’s kick debts ass’ blogs, I have started this to keep accountable on my journey and hopefully inspire others along the way.

Update: As of  June 2014 my debt stands at  $1273.01

And I’ll track my journey here on The Debt Breakup – just going along my merry debt busting way, keeping tabs on my progress and writing about it. Hopefully others may be inspired to end their own Debt relationships!

Sometimes you just need to know someone is in the same boat as you – and if they can jump ship, you can too 🙂

To debt free -and beyond!!!!!!

  2. I again think its amazing what you’re doing…and inspiring!!!!!

    • Thank you! I’m sure there will be some tough days (when all I want to do is spend spend spend!) but I know sticking it out will be worth it. Here’s to Debt Free!!

      • Yea, you’re right…I struggle with saving versus enjoying life. We’re not frugal, but we’re also not lavish per se. Taking trips might be our primary vice. We would be year round travellers if we could have our way!

    Good Luck with eliminating your debt. I too have lots of debt. Student loans mainly I should be retired by the time I pay them off.

    • Im on a debt smashing mission! I just want to be rid of it all ASAP. I feel like my life is a bit on hold until it’s all paid but it will totally be worth it! Thanks for your comment and stopping 🙂

  4. Love you post. I am on the mission to smash my student loans. Part 2 is coming soon!!!

    You’re doing a great thing by helping others in the same boat as you are (as you have mentioned). Looking forward to your travel escapades come 2015. Cheers

    I just discovered your blog. Very cool that you’re doing this, both trying to deal with your debt and also sharing your experiences about the process with people. I write a fairly-new blog all about Financial Wellness. Maybe there are some tips there that might help you in your hunt for debt freedom. I’m encouraged by your awareness and your goals– those are two big pieces of the puzzle of financial health. Good luck with your journey!

    • Thanks for stopping by The Debt Breakup! It’s great to share my experience with debt honestly and openly (setbacks and all!) through the blog. I know other debt bloggers have been a huge source of encouragement to me on the journey so far! So hopefully I can also encourage people via The Debt Breakup 🙂 I will certainly stop by your blog! I am always up for financial hints and tips!

    • Thanks so much for your comment! Sharing my experience has helped keep me accountable on this mission and hopefully letting others in similar situations with debt know they are not alone – and debt freedom is POSSIBLE!!!! Thanks again for dropping by 🙂
