As newlyweds, Keith and Emily were focused on trying to keep up with the Joneses.
Having a run-of-the-mill apartment wasn’t good enough—they wanted a trendy loft. And they didn’t want a simple, reliable car—they needed a convertible. “Everything it took our parents 30 years to achieve, we wanted it right then,” Keith said.

“We had no idea the mess that we were getting ourselves into,” Emily said.
Then they saw an advertisement for Financial Peace University in their church’s weekly bulletin. “We went to the first class, and it wrecked me,” Emily said. “We woke up. We never looked back—we were on fire right away.”
They became serious about paying off all $162,000 of their debt and living like no one else. The first step? Downsizing. Keith, Emily and their two daughters moved into a two-bedroom apartment. “We had completely flipped our mentality,” Keith said. All the profits from the sale of their home went toward their debt.
But, according to Emily, sticking to the plan for seven years was anything but easy. “I would ask Keith, ‘What is the point of this?’ I would get depressed, he would get depressed, and we had to lean on each other,” she said.
