“For the next 6 or 7 years, we did everything in our power to pay off our mortgage, and to the extent I can point to a specific time when my aversion to debt became a life-altering force, this is it.

I had to share that quotation with you. If you are on the journey to be debt-free, and are ‘gazelle intense’ you will understand this statement with every fiber of your being. We feel the same way about ever taking on any type of debt again.

Have you read any great personal finance books this summer?
