At the beginning of the year I mentioned something called the Debt Movement. It's organizers hope to pay down a total of $10 million of debt by getting individuals to join in a report how much they've repaid.
According to Jeff Rose, who started the movement, there are current about 1,900 people signed up with $175,000 of debt paid off. One reader already paid off the $3,000 of debt she had so she's completely debt free.
I like the idea. Most of us are more likely to accomplish any goal if we have encouragement, companionship and accountability. That's one of the reasons that we encourage TDS Forums. It's encouraging to see that we have over 300,000 posts from readers like you. I don't know how many people were helped by those posts, but I'm sure that it's more than a handful.
So why not take a few moments to check out TDS forums and The Debt Movement site?
Keep on Stretching those Dollars!
