Teaching Our Children How To Live Debt-Free

1 Minute Read

By Pam in Indiana

We had been trying to pay off $85,000 over the last five years and had gotten down to $54,000. We weren't in gazelle mode! Through a miraculous blessing, within the last month we are debt-free other than our house and have our three-to-six month emergency fund fully funded. We are getting ready to set up our IRAs and college funds for our youngest three kids. Our oldest child started college this the fall, and we will pay cash for the amount not covered by scholorships.

It's been a long, hard and frustrating road, but we feel free for the first time in five years! We've had a few major expenses come up recently, and for the first time, we didn't panic because there were funds to cover them.

Our children will never go down the road we have because they've lived it with us. It's been a great teaching tool for them.
