Some people wonder what the point of becoming debt free is. They figure they have owed someone money their entire life so why not keep going? I’ll tell you that one reason that is important to me is travel.
I greatly enjoy going places with my family. By getting out of debt we have been able to experience so much in the last few years. In fact, exactly one year ago today we started our 1,972 mile driving journey!
If there are things you want to do but don’t think you have the money for it then there are a couple things you can do to find the money:
*Do a written budget each month.
*Work on getting out of debt.
*Eliminate eating out until you are debt free.
*Visit sites like Money Saving Mom and Save The Coupons for a list of deals for your shopping trips.
All of this comes down to one thing – FOCUS! Focus your attention on paying for that trip of a lifetime and take steps to make it happen. Focus on eliminating your debt. Focus on your written budget so you know where your money is going so you can get out of debt.
