Through With Debt at Only 22

1 Minute Read

By Donna in NC

I am a 22-year-old stay-at-home mom with one son. My husband is 22 years old and in the Marine Corps. We have always had debt from car loans, personal loans, credit cards—the works. As of February 2009, we were $26,500 in debt, but as of May 19, 2009, we are debt-free! We sold the truck and the four-wheeler, and I wore stretched out maternity clothes until about six weeks ago. But we did it! We have one car and it is paid off.
