Pay It Forward Giveaway!

As some of you may remember, I won a Pay It Forward giveaway a few months ago. Having hosted a giveaway at the same time, I didn't feel the need to do another giveaway so soon. But now the time has come.

As many of you know, me and E having been working hard this year to pay off all of our debt. We fell upon Dave Ramsey's book Financial Peace right before we got married and really put it into practice over the past year. What a life change. Not that there was any fighting about money before (because E was never home and I just did what I needed to do) but we wanted to make sure that we didn't end up being one of those couples who fights constantly about money.
We also wanted to have plans for the future, plans for our kids and no bills to pay. While that's not entirely achieveable, since we will end up paying the power, water and gas bill every month, I want to be able to live my life without a car payment, without a credit card payment and without a student loan payment. We want to be able to pay for large purchases without having to use credit! Insane right?? No to us and so many others that are working towards that kind of lifestyle. We don't want to owe anyone...anything!!!

Since we are one step closer to paying off our debt (if you missed this post, we paid off our cars 2 weeks ago), I have decided to do a book giveaway. And no you don't get to chose which book...sorry! I am giving away Dave Ramsay's Total Money Makeover (unless you would rather have another one of Dave's books instead). Great book full of common sense advice that will teach you how to get out of debt, save, invest, and live the life you want without debt's hold over you. And just so you know, I plan on giving away another one of Dave's books everytime I pay off another bill.

So comment on this post before Monday at 5:00pm, and I will put you into the drawing for the book. I promise, it will change your life! I will announce the winner on Tuesday, November 28th. Good luck to you all!!
