Benefits of less debt

Less stress. Less stress when bills arrive. Less arguments about money. Less pressure to get that promotion. Less stress when dealing with life’s surprises. Less stress with every purchase.

How to get less debt

Despise debt. The first trick for us was to change our mindset towards debt. For years we did not think debt was a big deal. We found ourselves repeating maxims almost subconsciously:

  • That promotion will come through in a few months (spending money we didn’t have).
  • School loans provide a nice tax write off (debt is normal).
  • Everybody has a mortgage (debt is normal).
