Welcome To MyFamilyOnABudget.com!
I'm so happy you dropped by here at my personal finance website. I try to write personal finance stories going through life with 2 girls. I aim to inspire, motivate, and educate while laughing along the way beating debt and building wealth.
Personal finance has been a passion of mine since my wife and I took Financial Peace University back in August 2011. You can read our entire story here. Since then, we've paid off all of our debt other than our home mortgage, totaling over $27,000 over 2 years. We've continued to work the FPU baby steps and now have a fully funded emergency fund as well as are actively investing.
This website aims to inspire you by sharing our net worth reports, motivate you by sharing different stories of people winning with money and educate you with informative personal finance articles that are easy to read and relate to with actionable content that you can put into place right away.

Hopefully, as you learn to get control of your finances as well, you will share your story to help motivate and inspire others as well. We are here to learn from one another and I can't wait to hear your input on any of our posts in the comments section of your favorite posts!
