Progress – Baby Steps

Filed under: Debt,Journey to Debt Freedom — ambercouric @ 9:03 am

In the pass two weeks, I have made some progress on reducing debt.

  1. Stopped going to the grocery store everyday.
  2. Stopped drinking tons of Diet Coke – this has made #1 possible.
  3. Paid off $805 in debt.

I feel good about the progress so far. 

Thanks to everyone who leaves comments and encourages me along the way.  You are truly a blessing.

  3. That’s a huge chunk of money towards a debt! Nicely done… You’ll feel way better dropping the coke, too. It took me some time to stop drinking regular coke on a daily basis, but it’s really worth it. Now I can enjoy it just on occasion.

    Congrats! 🙂

  5. Great job on the amount of debt paid off! Good luck on the upcoming month!

    How do you feel now that you aren’t drinking the coke like before? I know that when I stopped drinking soda, I dropped 5 pounds in like a month! Congrats!
