Our First Ever✨Budget_Queens Client has paid over $16k in debt in 6 months❗️Read her testimony below 👇🏼 @meegrogrs ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I remember thinking “I’ll never have any money, so I might as well just spend what I have on whatever I want.” This was my mindset. For as long as I can remember I was always anxiously swiping my debit card, not sure how much was going out, yet stressed about the amount that was going out each month. Thankfully, last year I had gotten a new job and was able to save a few thousand dollars but I had absolutely no idea what to do with the money.
I was explaining my situation to Sam and in return she challenged me to make a budget and start the debt snowball. I knew about these ideas before because I read Dave Ramsey’s book. However, I never actually knew how to put the principles into action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sam sat down with me and we MADE THAT BUDGET and I also started the Cash Envelope Method. In that moment, I immediately paid off my smallest loan of $1000.00 to get my snowball rolling. Since that day 6 months ago, I’ve paid off $16,755.26!! The thought of a $300 monthly student loan payment used to weigh so heavy on my shoulders, but I am now prepared to make that payment plus more every month and watch that number go down.
I’m so happy now that I have a plan for not just my money, but for my future (and my future family) and it is the most freeing, exciting, and empowering feeling that I have experienced in a long time. Accountability, guidance, and encouragement has been SO helpful in keeping me on track on my way to becoming debt free and the BUDGET QUEENS are where I find that support. I can’t wait to check back in a few months and say that I am finally “100% DEBT FREE!!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
