Any Dave Ramsey Followers?

I'm intrigued by the Dave Ramsey plan to get out of debt.  Anyone follow his ideas? Any books and/or sites you'd recommend for someone just starting out?

Quite of the few of the ladies on the Debt Support board are DR followers.  His website is good and full of resources and his Total Money Makeover book is good also, I have it on my shelf at home.

Hi Ohbaby2012. Congratulations on your desire to get out of debt. Dave Ramsey has a lot of followers. Suzy Orman too. There are a number of schools of thought on how to tackle your debt. My feedback to you is to not run out and buy a lot of materials from Dave Ramsey, Suzy Orman, and others. That only makes them richer and you a bit poorer (which is just the opposite of your desired goal!). Rather than buy their materials you can check your local library for Ramsey and Orman materials for free. Both of these financial gurus have been around for years and your library surely has their materials on the shelf at $0. $0 is good!!! Carolyn
