  1. Reading these every month is really so inspiring to me. I’m always below average in how much I can pay (but I’m also a individual, so I excuse it), but it definitely gives me motivation to keep doing better.

  2. Hi Nichole, I am writing to share that I have just made the final payment on my credit card – after emergency boiler and oven replacements in December, meant I relied on it heavily this year and it’s been a slow and painful process to make payments each month – but thanks to you and your blog, I have found my focus on debt repayment. It feels so good to not have credit card debt…it’s given me a tiny taste of what paying off a bigger debt like my mortgage will be like 🙂

  3. The millions dollar challenge sounds awesome! What a great way to motivate many to get rid of debt!!!

    I’m just trying to get to know other military bloggers. I recently with to FINCON and met several bloggers there. Keep up the journey!
