  1. Hey, keep up the good work! Your blog shows tells a lot about your character and personality to stick with your budget, and most importantly, get out of debt and continue to build your net worth. Best of luck to you, I’ll continue to follow and see how your progress goes!


    1. Thank you for the kind words! Glad you found my little corner of the web! 🙂

  2. Hi Kara! I’ve loved following your blog so I nominated you for a Sunshine Blogger Award – it’s basically a pass-it-along Q-and-A post, but I had fun being nominated by someone and since I love your blog, I tagged you! http://halfbanked.com/2015/09/04/a-sunshine-y-q-and-a-with-dad-is-cheap/

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words and the nomination! I was actually nominated just a few weeks ago (https://fromfrugaltofree.wordpress.com/2015/08/10/sunshine-blogger-award/) but I always appreciate a blog shout out. Keep on saving girl!

  3. F-YEAH!!! Nice work! I definitely still have way to much debt to my name given the amount of annual income I actually make.. Much of which though is mortgage debt for a house that is now being rented.. But I’ve recently decided to move that debt payoff up the scale a bit further.. I still view that debt as a good tool since it does have some tax advantages.. but I also know I’m paying the bank more in interest than I receive in taxes… so it is not totally a WIN#.. My goal is to get by debt under $100K by end of the year. Make it be known!!!

    1. It is known! Congrats on setting a goal. Just keep reminding yourself what you want and it’ll be so easy to stick to. Thanks for reading!

  4. Great work. I saw your comments on the rootofgood website and I’m going to follow you since you’re close to my salary range. Most blogs I follow are ran by folks with high incomes who can shovel away 50K a yr in savings. I’m at about 40K + 15K for my 2nd job which I’ll be leaving soon to spend more time at home with my pregnant girlfriend. I’m curious to see your progress, good luck to you!

    1. Thanks and welcome! I agree, seems like most pf bloggers make 75K a year and are part of a high earning couple. Not me! I have a dream to save 10K next year and it’s going to take a lot of extra work. I’m also always interested in hearing from lower income people so shott me an email if there’s a topic you want to see me discuss here- fromfrugaltofree@gmail

  5. Wow, I’m amazed! I will need your help when I’m done schooling so I can pay off the 200+k I owe in student loans…

    1. Yes! I told Tabitha too, I’m happy to talk about it with y’all anytime. Debt is not forever!

  6. We want to say thanks for creating this cool site and keep up the fabulous work!

    1. thank you! so glad you found your way here. 🙂
