You probably don’t remember me, but two years ago you answered my question in the newspaper. I was a loser with three credit cards, a personal loan and a car loan — costing me a grand total of $47,000. I took your (tough love) advice, dominoed my debts, and saved like a woman possessed.
Now I want to report back that I’m about to make my final payment! Even better, I have $2,000 in my Mojo account! My secret was that each week I read your column and it gave me a pep-up that I really was on the right path. So I just want to thank you for all your advice.
I’m totally sending this to my grandmother.
Here’s the thing: even though you’ve turned your financial life around, you’ll soon see that the confidence you gain from getting control over your money will spill over to other areas of your life. Well done, Kate. You’re treading your own path!
