To celebrate our freedom from debt, Andy and I decided that we wanted to “pay it forward”. We wanted to share some of the resources that helped us on our debt-free journey with others out there who are beginning their own journey to debt-freedom. In all, the resources we are giving away are worth over... Read More→ The post The Debt Snowball Financial Resources Giveaway ($135 value!) appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

When I first dreamed of being debt free, I imagined myself paying off my debt and then celebrating by doing my “Debt Free Scream” on the Dave Ramsey show. I listened to the show religiously during the day at work and would imagine my own debt free celebrations. Honestly, listening to the Debt Free Screams... Read More→ The post Our At-Home “Debt Free Scream” & Why We Didn’t Go on the Dave Ramsey ...

39 months ago, I was a 21 year old recent college graduate with a job that paid barely above minimum wage. I was living with my mom because I couldn’t afford to live on my own. I felt as if there was no hope in sight, thanks to my financial mistakes that caused me to... Read More→ The post We’re DEBT FREE!!!!! appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

If you’re a frequent reader of Becoming Bailey, you’ll know that I love books. I read a lot. I used to reading anywhere from 8-15 (or more!) books in a month, but since starting college in August, my reading can best be described as “quality over quantity”. Truth be told, I just don’t have the time these... Read More→ The post Recent Reads {October 2017} appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

October was a great month, so to be honest, I am not thrilled to see November. While I am excited for two days off from work (thank you, Turkey Day!), I am not at all thrilled about the cold temperatures and snow that is on its way. Or should I say, already arrived! The first snow of... Read More→ The post Monthly Goals {November 2017} appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

When I first heard about the Military Influencer Conference, I knew it was something I just had to attend. A conference for military bloggers and influencers? Yes, please! I bought my tickets in February, way back before we even knew we would be moving to Iowa. When I accepted my current job offer, my reply... Read More→ The post My Experience at the Military Influencer Conference appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

On every vacation Andy and I take, we like to mix free activities with pricier ones. For our camping weekend in South Dakota, we decided our splurge would be a horseback ride through the Badlands. Unlike most national and state parks, the Badlands allows private horseback tour guides to bring their horses onto their land–... Read More→ The post Horseback Riding Through the Badlands appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

Last month, Andy and I had the opportunity to travel to South Dakota and see some famous sights such as Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, the Black Hills, Wall Drug. A trip that would take most people a week, we were able to knock out in a weekend, thanks to our close proximity from north Iowa.... Read More→ The post Visiting Mount Rushmore & Crazy Horse Memorial appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

I received two complimentary passes on the “Be a Dairy Farmer” tour in exchange for this blog post. Thank you again, New Day Dairy! Since our move to Iowa over the summer, Andy and I have jumped in feet-first in experiencing all things Midwestern.  Recently, a new friend named Lynn invited Andy and me out... Read More→ The post A Trip to an Iowa Dairy Farm appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

In my last debt snowball blog post, we had brought our total debt from $17,000 in June 2016 down to a little over $9,000 in March 2017. Most of that was due to paying off the credit card, but a good chunk of that was also due to being halfway through paying off our personal... Read More→ The post The Road to Debt Freedom…. we’re almost there! appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...
