The Fringe Benefits of Debt Diet

Some are easy to assume others came as a surprise. Here are some of those great fringe benefits you can expect to see:

  • Lose Weight- If you first thought is that I'm saying to starve yourself you are wrong. We found that by not eating out we saved more then money, we saved on calories as well.
  • Better Marriage- There is something magical about agreeing on a budget it. It some how makes life with your spouse so much easier. Maybe it's magic, maybe it has to do with agreeing to your spending in advance. You can make your own decision.
  • Peace- There is a peace that you feel when you take control of your own life. There is nothing peaceful about uncontrolled spending. In fact, it steals your peace and sense of security.
  • More Time- With less stress, less fighting, less eating you, less time shopping something else wonderful happens. You get your life back! You manage to find the time to do the things that are important to you.
  • Give More- It's a great feeling to give. To give your time, your talent, and your treasure. It's a lot easier to do that without the extra weight of debt.
  • Cleaner House- After you get done selling everything you don't need to help pay off your debt you have a whole lot less to clean. And trust me, you will not miss the mess!
