Debt-free is the new sexy

Imagine living your life…no mortgage payments…no rent…no car payments…no credit card debt…no student loans…no debt of any kind. Most people can’t imagine living like that. I can because I do live like that. Debt-free is the new sexy!

I remember when my family and I were living paycheck-to-paycheck. And, we were barely doing that. I remember several months of paying the least amount on all our bills, including the utilities, just to be able to put food on the table and gas in the tank to get my husband back to work. Not anymore. We are now living our dream – totally debt-free!

The best part of debt-free living is our daughter has two full-time parents. My husband is no long working or even looking for a job because we own a business we work part-time from home. We spend a few hours here and there and our daughter reaps the benefits. She goes to a private, Christian school and we never miss a school function. She doesn’t have to go to a day care or babysitter. We take her to school every day and pick her up. We help her with her homework. All because said “yes” to an opportunity and worked that opportunity so our dreams could become a reality.

Despite being debt-free, we aren’t driving fancy cars or going on cruises. Instead, we’ve chosen to help others. Don’t get me wrong – we still have fun. We take off to the lake for the week-end or go on a road trip. We decided to make the most of this opportunity and devote it to our family and helping others.

Anyone can do it. It is that simple. Say “yes” and change your life. By saying “yes,” you will be kicking your current debt to the curb and saying “never again.” Trust me, if we can do it, anyone can do it. It is that easy, if you try.

    I’m curious. Do you own your home? Do you have a garden? How self-sustaining are you? What type of business do you have?
    I now have student loans, but other than rent, I have nearly always been debt-free. I don’t believe in credit cards. I am still trying to be as self-sustaining as possible, despite my student loans (though my brown thumb does not help!). I recycle as much as possible (even clothes, which I haven’t bought in years), and barter and trade when possible.
