How to Get Out of Debt: 11 Actionable Steps to Live Better

Learn How to Get Out of Debt in 11 Steps

Debt payoff

Henry David Thoreau once said, “Almost any man knows how to earn money, but one in a million knows how to spend it.” Most people have not mastered the art of frugal living – living within your means. It is commonplace to use credit cards and buy on a whim.  Moreover, debt continues to grow and as your paycheck fizzles away, plastic replaces reality. Spending more than you make becomes a habit and your debt becomes a way of life.

In fact, learning how to spend with intention and cut out unnecessary items from your budget, can be your saving grace if you are in debt.

Are you in debt? You are not alone. Over 50% of Americans are in debt right along with you. The average American family carries a credit card debt of $8,377 according to CNBC.com.

One solution is to toss up your bills and hope you win the lottery, but your odds are super low.  So now is the time to solve your debt dilemma.

Reasons to Pay off Debt:

  • peace of mind
  • ability to save for an emergency fund
  • less stress
  • no family fights about money
  • own your house and car outright
  • fewer bills
  • pay less interest

Where to Buy Cute but Frugal Workout Gear

A friend of mine is looking to go to the Barr after having her baby… No, not the bar you are thinking of! Barr class to workout… Now you see where I’m going with this. Knowing I’m into frugal fashion and running, she texted me to find out where I shop for my frugal workout gear! I immediately gave her a list of several places that have always worked out (pun intended) for me!

Most women want to look cute while working out but if you are on a budget, you aren’t going to buy Lulu Lemon, Athleta, and Victoria’s Secret workout gear. Yet, there are ways to look pretty while you are sweatin’ to the oldies. (Sorry, bad old-school workout joke!) You just have to know where to look.

Frugal workout gear is easy to come by if you use my shopping tips listed below. The best part is the list offers good quality workout gear, so you won’t be literally running back to the store to buy more. So keep up your shopping pace as you read through my list and get ready to look cute while getting into shape this year!
