At first we started going through the Financial Fitness Program principles loosely and we never recorded any of our results. But, eventually we decided to get completely and fully committed to the Financial Fitness Program and we found that we had $426 a month that the ‘Green Box’ saved us from spending. That monthly savings doesn't even include the amount of money that Alicia and I saved when we switched from eating fast food to actually buying groceries and meal planning at home. That number may be close to $700+ saved monthly, but we haven't crunched those numbers yet. Basically that $426 was wasteful spending outside of our meals. Now we have a testimony that we can share with others!
We were $10K in debt and we didn’t have any hope for our financial future; we also weren’t on the same page financially as a couple. As we started going through the Financial Fitness Program, we were inspired to start applying the new information into our lives. After going through the ‘Green Box’, we found around $700 extra to invest in ourselves and our business, and have been able to save 10% of our income. Right now we are debt free! Also, by next month we will have our emergency fund complete. Without the information from the Green Box, we would have been trapped in the Financial Matrix forever.
