What is one piece of advice you would give to others on their personal finance journey?

If you can avoid it, do not use credit cards. You will dig a pit out of which it is hard to climb!

What’s your first financial goal when you become debt free?

Leave money we have saved with The Payoff Loan for our children!

In what way did Happy Money assist you in your personal finance journey?

As a senior citizen, it is important for me to pay our debts so our children do not have to worry about it. We were able to borrow enough money to pay off four accounts which carried very high finance charges. The Payoff Loan has a much lower interest rate and will be paid off in two years. The only monthly payments we have left are insurances and utilities and one credit card.
