    I’m glad you’ll be focusing on this, Sara. I paid off all of my debt (minus the mortgage) at the end of 2012, and now I’m developing some new goals for saving and home improvement. I want to keep the momentum that I had to become debt-free; I think this series will help! Happy New Year! :)

    Interesting acronym – gotta say it threw me for a loop for a second, though!

    I agree that we should cut expenses wherever possible. You can cut down on food quite a bit if you are in the habit of going out to eat frequently. But the healthiest food does cost. If you go from a conventional whole-foods diet to one consisting of organic produce and pasture-raised meat, your expenses will go up.

    But I believe that should be considered an investment in health, not an expense. IMHO. ;)

    Food. It’s all about doing food better. I am so frustrated with our picky kid eaters, my own dietary limitations (need to be gluten-free), and my culinary-skills limitations. I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve got in store for us. :-)

    After 3 years, this is our first year being debt-free. My whole focus is on saving, saving and saving some more! Look forward to reading more. Personally, if I could move to the country and live sustainably I would..one day. ;)
