On Independence Day, we celebrate America.
But I also like to think about another type of independence on this special holiday – Financial independence.
There is absolutely nothing more freeing than paying off your debts. When you don’t have debt it gives you so much freedom to do the things that you want, while building a strong foundation for your financial future.
For those of you who are already debt free, I hope you take some time to remember the road that brought you to freedom and to help others on their own debt-free journeys.
For those of you who are struggling with debt, NOW is the time to start working on your plan for financial independence. Start with our list of 5 books every broke person should read and then check out our frugal living posts for more ideas on how to put what you read into action.
And for those of you who are working so hard to pay down those debts, KEEP GOING. Every little bit that you do gets you closer to your goal.
Enjoy the long weekend with family and friends and remember that they are far more important than any stuff you buy or trips you take.
Happy Independence Day!
