Description

How To Find & Eliminate Spending Leaks is designed to help you plug the leaks your personal budget.  By the end of this course you will have the tools needed to identify and correct key holes in your budget.  We will go over the worst offenders including your current bills, miscellaneous bills, grocery spending, & credit card usage.  

I have included step by step directions and am using these same methods to control my spending.  

Seven years ago my husband and I had $446,000 worth of debt.  We knew we were in trouble, but were overwhelmed with the numbers.  It was a very scary time period for us.  I went through our spending and eliminated everything I could and then did the same thing over and over again.   

I kept refining the process and learned to be very intentional with my spending.  

We now owe $118,000 after paying off $328,000 in seven years. It has been a long process, but I firmly believe that anyone can decrease debt by learning to control their personal finances.  

This class will provide the foundational tools you need to begin this process.

I want you to be able to look back at your progress in 3-5 months and know that you have transformed your spending habits through hard work and determination.  

I probably shouldn't admit this, but nothing in this class is earth shattering.  It is all common sense practical advice that will help you change your view of money and subsequent spending habits.  

More then anything, I want you to know that you can do this.  I'll be your cheerleader throughout the process and you are always welcome to contact me directly.  You can do this!

I'm an Intentional Living Blogger with an emphasis on Personal Finance.  Seven Years ago my husband and I married and ended up with $446,000 in debt (yes you read that number right).  Seven years later we have $118,000 left on our home which will hopefully be paid off by our ten year anniversary.  

Over the last seven years, I've done it all to earn extra money and save money.  During our journey I've come to realize that often our most valuable resource is our income.  As I've learned to control my spending and save money, I've found that budgeting is significantly easier.  

My goal is to help my students learn to manage their personal finances.  If you can control your spending you can do anything!
