Hi I'm Judy from VT, retired from the military in 2007, but due to poor choices/difficult situations still need to work!
Over the past year (May 2014), I have done a lot of work to change.
It started with The Minimalist's 30 day challenge that went way, way, way beyond 30 days.
I got rid of approximately 75% of all of my stuff by either selling, paying forward, recycling or tossing.
Along with the stuff purge, I started journaling my spending & came clean on my finances via Julia Cameron's Prosperous Heart & Your Money or Your Life.
I ravenously search and read every possible blog I could landing here on MMM a few months ago.
Needless to say, thanks to Mr. & Mrs. MM & all of you, I am hooked!
Over the past year I have been able to pay off $29K of my $43k CC & car loan debt.
Since my money habits have changed dramatically, I am looking to downsize or work my current place into some investment opportunity. I want to work to live, not the other way around.
Soon will post a case study so you all can give me some suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
