I am brand new to message boards & just figured out how big of a debt hole my husband and I are in. It was an eye-opener to see that w/o including the house we have $72k in debt. I am determined to get this down quickly & am inspired by seeing so many people who have made some great progress!

Welcome!

Yup, a lot of us have debts as large as yours and have paid them off here.

You can post your monthly bills here and see if people can give you suggestions of ways to save on them possibly freeing up money to live on.

You can also list your CC debts, their corresponding interest rates, so people can suggest which ones to concentrate on paying off first. People can help you strategies paying off your debt.

There are marvelous weekly areas where you can post your progress or defeats such as Monday Accountability or Friday Snow Flake. I really managed my compulsive spending problem using the Monday Acct. Check in section! I changed over four years of doing it. Now I'm maintaining hoping to never fall off the wagon again.

HI and welcome. I have that much debt (actually more if you throw in my worthless car) and inconsistent income but I am plugging away right next to you!

Wow, thanks for such a warm welcome & the advice! I've been working on lowering my debt for a while now and it has definitely been 2 steps forward, 1 step back. We are committed to making some lifestyle changes this time & I've been reading/watching everything I can get my hands on for advice for the last few months so I feel we'll be successful this time.
