Hi, I’m Liza!
Welcome to my blog, Short Stack Tall Order! I’m so happy you’ve found me! Here, you’ll follow me on my debt-free journey where a short stack of cash won’t stop me from living my tall order dreams of becoming debt-free, retiring at sixty, and living a fulfilled life. I’m a wife, happily married for over twenty-five years, a mom to two beautiful kids, and a personal finance geek. Even though I love personal finance topics, I never really followed a consistent plan. Regrettably, I never found anything that would stick, until I found the debt-free community.
I am tackling my financial situation and taking the steps towards debt-free living.
In December of 2016, my hubby and I were forced to face our financial demons. We were smacked with a life-changing event that although was devastating at the time, was probably the best thing that ever happened to us. After finding out that my hubby would be losing his job, we decided that it was probably the right time for one of us to stay home. Unfortunately, we thought we could squeeze by if we cut back and made some sacrifices, but boy, were we in for a surprise. We had no idea of how big of a hole we were in.
After adding up all of our debt balances, we were shocked. Our debt totaled $72,000 (school, credit card, car and miscellaneous consumer debt). Adding up our debt payments and other bills was gut wrenching. We had way more expenses than income. We knew that we needed to make a change fast, but we didn’t know where to start.
And that’s when I found the debt-free community through Dave Ramsey’s book, the Total Money Makeover. We started on Dave’s plan to financial freedom and have never looked back.
To sum it up, my life, money mindset, and attitude has changed for the better. I can’t wait to share my experiences, hardships, and triumphs in the hopes that I might inspire you to reach your financial goals and dreams too I would love to share my advice about debt-free living, personal finance, and my plans to retire early. My blog is for anyone wanting to take charge of their finances, live debt free, and enjoy a fulfilled life. I’m here to prove to you that a short stack of cash won’t stop you from living your tall order dreams.
Let’s start planning your tall order dreams now!
