A few weeks ago my husband walked into the bathroom and got his socks all wet. He thought I had just taken a bath and splashed a bit (if you follow me on Instagram you know how I like my baths). After convincing him (yes it took some convincing) that I hadn’t been in there we realized our ceiling was leaking AWESOME! And of course we were due for a huge storm that week so we needed to get it taken care of ASAP.
We ended up needing an entire new roof. Not cheap. And to top it off this was just a few days before Christmas. Thankfully we have a fully funded emergency fund so what could have easily been a giant problem was just a minor annoyance.
The musicmaker and I discovered Dave Ramsey‘s radio show early in our marriage and we made it a priority to become debt free. Can I just say how amazing it is to pay off your last student loan, or know that you don’t owe anyone for anything (except the house), or go on a vacation and know that you don’t have to figure out how to pay off the credit card bills when you get home? It’s a whole wonderful new feeling.
This is NOT a sponsored post. I did not get a free copy of this book and I’m not getting compensated for writing this post (but I am using an amazon affiliate link below). I just know what a blessing this information has been to my family and when I saw that Dave’s books were on sale I wanted to share the love. I know how crippling debt can be and even if it’s not crippling exactly there is just a freedom that comes with paying with money you have and living within your means.
So today I am giving away a copy of Dave Ramsey’s best selling Total Money Makeover. I haven’t read it all myself yet (I bought a copy for us though) but I’ve flipped through it and I’m excited. It has so many of the great lessons and wonderful stories I’ve heard Dave teach on his radio show over the years. In addition to the book I made a pretty coupon/money holder from my coupon holder tutorial. You can use it to hold coupons or like we do to separate our cash for our “envelope system” (basically each section is money from a different part of our budget like groceries, house, eating out, etc.)
There are lots of ways to enter see the rafflecopter below (reload if you don’t see it).
