About Me

Hi.  I´m Chela.  I´m almost 30, and my husband I and I have a lot of debt.  Most of it is my credit card debt.  Some of it is his student loans.  I work as a Senior Marketing Analyst at a cell phone company, my husband is in school full time.

In August 2014, I quit credit cards cold-turkey.  It´s been a tough, but eye-opening experience.  I´m managing to pay our bills, pay down debt, and even save a little, too.  As of January 1, 2015, I had about $60,000 in debt.  Click the link up top for our monthly debt updates.

I´m not an expert, but I´m learning, and I´m trying.  I don´t necessarily have dreams of super early retirement, I just want to be rid of my debt, and have a nice buffer in savings, so as to have more options in life.

My husband and I love to travel, and so I hope to write about our frugal travelling on this blog, as well.  Abroad, we´ve lived in France, Germany, Ireland, and New Zealand.  We´ve also visited Spain, England, Italy, Czech Republic, Australia, Fiji, China, Mexico, Peru and Costa Rica.  We haven´t been everywhere yet, but it´s on our list.  🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by, and reading.  Read here about WHY I´m writing this blog.
