We're starting FPU

Well, Sam and I are starting the Dave Ramsey class tonight. We're both committed to this, and we're going to make huge strides to get to it. He has an interview at Lowe's this afternoon, so we'll see how that goes. I got a 2nd job at HyVee working about 15-20 hours a week. I started last Friday. It was good, but boy did my feet hurt!!! And my shoulder started bugging me again like it used to. Guess I'm waaaaay out of shape!

We've sold the 4 wheeler for over $2k, which is nice! We put a bunch of other stuff up for sale, like our bike trailer that we hardly used, Sam's putting his bow and one of his guns up for sale (after checking how legal that is), we've sold a ton of our DVDs, etc. He's also been donating plasma and is using that money (they put it on a debit card) for gas money, so at least that's not coming out of the checking account.

I'll actually be glad to see deer season come this year, and I might even encourage Sam to get two deer this year. We're almost out of ground deer meat, and our ground beef (that we've had for 3 years now) is getting low as well. But I tell ya, there's only so much you can do with ground meat. Need to keep an eye open for good sale on chicken breasts and pork chops, etc.

We've made over $200, probably, selling DVDs. Did I tell you that even on the swap-a-dvd site, that I can sell my credits? So I'm even making a little bit there. Every little bit helps.

Well, as you can tell, debt reduction is huge in my mind right now.
