Great info!

Key information in the episode “How do I pay down debt?”. I am familiar with the snowball method and haven’t heard much about paying down higher interest debt until now. Very logical to start that method vice the debt snowball method with the information presented. Also, really great that y’all took the time to mention that you can “have your cake and eat it too” with paying debt at the same time as enjoyment. Thank you.

Skip or spend trivia

I have a love of travel. These ladies posed a question about a windfall… Pay off debt or add extra days to a current vacation. I have to say: I felt less ashamed, knowing that everybody really thinks much alike. They looked at all the pros and cons and a happy medium.
