I just had an article/advertisement show up in my yahoo news feed. The title of the "article" was

"How to get out of debt without getting a loan."

Well no shit Sherlock.

Right up there with "How to lose weight."

"Eat less, exercise more." Um...duh?




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

We paid our mortgage off early. I divided the monthly payment by four, rounded it up to a nice even number, and sent that to the bank each week. Whenever I had a little extra cash, I sent another check.

We cleared the mortgage about a year ago. It feels good!



A mind is a terrible thing.

Borrowing to pay bills is just trading one debt for another debt, I think is his point.

Writing and sending that last house payment is one of the best feelings in life. We did it 15 years ago and retired debt free and pay cash for everything. It isn't easy, but is doable if you set your mind to it.

How to Pay Off a Home!
1) Don't get Married
2) If you get married don't divorce
3) If you get divorced, don't remarry
4) if you remarry, don't do it again
5) or again!

I have bought 3 houses for 3 ex-wives!

^^ This! ^^

Feels great at any age.

You'll forget all of the extra jobs / projects / overtime that went on beforehand.

One of the best ways to do it.

While I don't know the context of that article it probably is the same advice Dave Ramsey gives. Structure your debt differently than you do now. Commonsense approach many people don't think of.

Buy less than you can afford. If you can pay the monthly payments on a 400k house, buy a 300k house. If you can afford a new 40k truck every 5 years, buy a 30k truck every 10.

I’m not rich, but I got three paid off vehicles, a nice savings and zero debt other than the mortgage.
