When my wife Kim and I got married we decided to combine our finances and realized that we had $52,000 in non-mortgage debt. It included student loans, credit cards and even a car loan. We decided that we needed to make a change and we set a goal to pay it off in 18 months. Well, we hit our goal! Since then our story of how we paid off $52,000 in debt in 18 months was featured in the US News and World Report and Fox News and we were so grateful for those opportunities. To give you a better understanding of our story check out this video from Fox and Friends:
