US National Debt – January 2011 Update

One of the most compelling reasons for why we do what we do here at IWBNIN is the SOARING US National Debt.   Every month, we are going to highlight (lowlight) the increase to OUR national debt.   Then, we’re going to challenge everyone to do something about it.

National Debt as of 1/04/2011


By the time this post was completed, the national debt increased by an additional $1 million.

If WE do not live our lives within our means – WE will never be able to hold our leaders accountable to do the same. I’m looking for some people who will commit to live within their means, save for a rainy day, refuse unending government handouts, and become wholly self-sufficient.   Who’s in?

    We have been in the game for quite some time. We can not control what others do only what we do, weather it is our government leaders or friends and neighbors. Saving and living with in our means has had a HUGE impact on our lives. For the positive!!
