This blog-style article was a great resource for me and I think many others could gain from it as well. Learning from other people’s mistakes is a great way to learn a valuable lesson without making the mistake yourself. This couple was over 200,000 dollars in debt just a few years ago, and talked about their experience and how they got out of it. I find it very helpful to see the basic lifestyle changes they made that had such a huge impact on them getting out of debt. Living within your means is definitely a great way of minimizing your chances of accumulating large amounts of debt, and this article helped articulate that for me.
