Eliminate Debt

A debt-free life is within your reach. Tips for getting (and staying) out of debt.

First, we reduce our expenses.

Learning to live a frugal life has been the catalyst to my success. I couldn’t live how I do if I had expensive taste.

My home is small, we are a one-car (and four bike) family, have a strict budget and live quite happily without an electric dryer. I never feel that I am missing out as this life has become customary (one of the benefits of travel is that it forces you to live with less).

Then, we grow our income.

Frugality will get you a long way. But to truly find financial freedom, we need to earn more.

I’ve built a full-time business from blogging in part-time hours, as the mother of two young children with a husband who works fulltime. If you’re interested in blogging for income, check out the blogging courses that helped me make over $5000/month blogging.
