When I decided to get out of debt, one source of advice and inspiration was Dave Ramsey (via his books and podcast).  Those early months of using the envelope system were frustrating, and I found the debt-free screams he features on his show very motivational (click here to watch the best of them).

As someone who loves spreadsheets, when I finally decided to get out of debt, I approached it as if it were a mathematical problem.  I had about $60,000 in debt (credit card, student loans, home equity loan and car loan) and if I trimmed back my expenses I could put about $2500 a month toward [...] ...

Growing up, there was probably a time when you wanted something your parents weren’t willing to buy you, and you were told that the only way to get it was to save up and pay for it yourself.  Finding the motivation to do so was fairly simple because you knew how much money you needed, [...] ...
