Debt Update: $1,000 On The Family Loan

Another month come and gone. Is it just me or is time flying by this year?

Anyway, it was another typical month. Nothing too special. We did pay $1,000 on the family loan, our largest amount to date! We’re hoping it leads to a lot more in the future.

August should be a good month as we are getting an extra $1,000 from a summer job that my wife did plus about $500 in some stuff that we sold on eBay.


My name is Adam and I am in debt. Yep, I came out and said it in the first sentence. I hope that shows you how passionate I am about getting out of debt and enjoying life in the process. Join my wife and me on our journey and be sure to contribute to the great discussions. You can get FREE email updates about the site as soon as they are posted.

    Great work! Keep it up! We’ve been trying to sell some stuff around here ourselves…

      Get selling! It helps give you the feeling of getting some traction. Not to mention it helps remove clutter from the house.

    That’s awesome that you are making progress. Every time I try to implement something like this, something comes up, like fixing the car, or I just feel too overwhelmed by the numbers. Thanks for showing that people in debt really can get out.

    Good job Adam. That family loan has to be the #1 priority in my opinion, and that’s what it seems like you are focusing on!

    Cheers, Sam
