I stumbled upon this TV show. Til Debt Do Us Part, today and man, was it a wake up call! One, it made me cry to hear and see the one husband not take the advice to sell the home. They would have been able to pay off all their debt and still had money in the bank. Two, it made me think how we were before we lost our jobs. We were spenders!
Third, we're spending more than the 35% on housing. The solution is to bring in more income and continue to let go of stuff.
Our first priority - to get rid of the storage unit. It's costing us almost $100 a month. I realize that we're not going to be moving anytime soon. We'll be bringing some items home, making some donations and hopefully selling some items. I would like to have the storage unit vacated within 2 months.
