I’m Jen. I’m a twentysomething on budget with an uber-frugal husband. We got married on October 3rd, 2015 with $84,000 of debt between us. Since then we’ve paid off over
$45K $64K and we’re on track to be debt free August 31st 2017!
Growing up no one taught me about personal finance. There was never any talk about retirement, investing, or life insurance. When I got to college I had no clue how to pay for it so I took out loans and a credit card to get by. This is not just my story, 42% of our generation have student loans averaging upwards of $28K and consumer debt on top of it.
My mission is to be debt free so I can travel more and stay home with my kids whenever we decide to have them.
I started this blog to help my friends who often ask about our financial decisions or are forced to listen to them at parties (which we don’t get invited to much anymore.)
I want to prove to all the haters that you can live on a budget and still play hard. I want to encourage you and help you along your journey in doing the same. So if you’re ready to live on the edge of personal finance and like a little confetti,
let’s be friends.
