Debt Free Friday

I got something a little bit different in my email yesterday: an update on how a Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University class did during their nine weeks in the classroom.  Paul Trebiatowski--who co-ordinates the program at the 20th Avenue YMCA every winter--tracked how attendees were doing coming into the class--and how they are doing upon completion.  And I must say, things are looking good!

So the group of 19-students at the Y managed to pay off 21% of their non-mortgage debt in just nine weeks.  And they managed to increase their individual savings by $322 A WEEK.  Plus, they whittled down their credit card accounts to just about one per person.  I congratulate all those who took part in this winter's classes--and I wish you the best of luck on your continued journey toward Financial Peace.

While the YMCA won't run another FPU class until next winter, you can learn how to take care of your money in a class now forming at St Raphael's Church in Oshkosh.  Their classes will start on April 11th.  You can find out more by clicking on this link:
