My husband and I attended our first class of "Financial Peace University". I count this as a huge milestone! The first class is titled " Super Savings" and it was an overview of the whole series of classes. My husband was interested and much to my surprise is on board with completing the "Baby Steps".
- Step 1 is putting $1000.00 away for an emergency. We have that covered.
- Step 2 is pay off consumer debt. Done.
- Step 3 build a 3-6 months Emergency Fund. This is where we are at.
We have both( actually he voiced it first) decided to stop funding our retirement accounts and working extra hrs is possible until we have put away 6 months of living expenses. Wow.
I am so grateful that as of now we can finally work as a "team" to manage our finances.
