Success Story: Freed up $425/month by selling car

Rebekah sent me a link to her blog post recently where she shared her family’s story – and their decision to sell their car.

You should take the three minutes necessary to read THEIR STORY.

Read it?   OK, here are my thoughts …

  • It took awhile to have their IHHE Moment (I Have Had Enough Moment)
  • Once they had their IHHE Moment, they persevered long enough to take their next step
  • They determined their next step – and then they took the next step (I see SO many people who KNOW what they should do, but for whatever reason, they are unable to make it happen.)

Way to go Rebekah and Chad!   We are all cheering you on as you take your next steps toward financial freedom!

    The pain of change became less painfull than the
    pain of staying the same.

    Great story! My hubby and I have been doing without a car since February. We lost our car in a fire in January. We had a rental for about 30 days, then got rides from other people. Since May though, we have been almost exclusively walking and taking public transportation. We are lucky to live in an area that has public transportation. It is a complete lifestyle change. We buy local as often as possible and we appreciate what we have because we can’t just hop in the car and run to the store to get more. Because we are not buying from the large chain stores, we sometimes pay a bit more, but we are supporting local businesses so that makes up for it in our minds. As I said, we are also more careful about using what we have and not just buying and buying. Some days it is really hard not to have a car – sometimes I feel deprived, but we take it one day at a time and it is really changing our life and allowing us to get a handle on our finances! 🙂
