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!
On August 24, 2016, we paid off our last debt. We are completely and totally debt
free! Three years ago, we were $5,281,000 in debt and facing bankruptcy. Then, two
weeks later, September 2013, Financial Fitness came into our lives. We’ve applied
what we’ve learned through the principles of the Financial Fitness Program - we
budgeted our money, we saved, and we paid off the loans with the income we made
through Tom’s regular work. All the while, we were reading, listening and associating
with precious people like our mentors and friends and as a result, we own everything--we don’t owe a
bank anything, so we are ecstatic!
