“We buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like.” (The Total Money Makeover)

How Do I Track My Debt Payoff
Let’s get started. How do I track my debt payoff? The quick and easy answer is a debt tracker PDF. However, it will be futile to began a debt payment tracker without knowing how to get started.
To track you debt payoff you need to set a budget, know helpful tips, and calculate your debt. With a debt calculator, you will then have a debt payment plan to began your journey of being debt free.
Debt Payoff Tips
There are a few debt pay off tips to consider when beginning this process.
- Create a budget
- Maintain a Debt Progress Tracker
- Pay more than the minimum balance
- Put a halt on your credit cards
- Spend cash only (where you can) Start with a Cash Envelope Wallet.
- Take a no spend challenge while you payoff debt
- Have a friend hold you accountable
- Set small goals
- Have a reward at the end goal
When you feel you are going to cheat, have a mantra. A mantra is a a statement or slogan repeated frequently. For example, when I am watching what I am eating, before I pick up that OREO, I tell myself “beach body.” It reminds me for the look I am going for.
The same can be true with spending habits. Before you spend, have a mantra. Before you swipe the credit card or pull out that wallet, say “act your wage” (another Dave Ramsey quote.) Make the quote your own. You could say “family vacation” (a small reminder of your reward at your end goal!)
What will your debt payoff mantra reminder be?
