Debt-free and loving’ it!

On Wednesday, March 31, 2010 we became DEEBT FREEEEE! We made the FINAL payment on our school debt, eliminating the ridiculous $57,500 of debt that we had accrued. It was a 3-year goal completed in 2 years and 10 months! This amazing feat all started with a wedding gift from Dad Hutchens—Financial Peace University. Hesitant […]
