So I’ve known all along how much debt sucks, but it’s really starting to hit home now for some reason. I still spend more money than I should, but I find myself wanting to spend less and less. I even came to a point a couple weeks ago when I was seriously considering getting a second job working nights and some weekends to help get out of debt. I know Dave Ramsey would applaud it, but there’s the other side of me that doesn’t want to do the extra work. It’s that side that says if I just stop spending so much, and save/pay debt, then I can get out of it fine. It might take longer, but I can get out of it. It feels like a war between two different sides of me, and I’m not sure which one I would rather win.
Like I said, on one hand I really, really want to be out of debt ASAP, and another job could help with that, but then the other side says “would it really help enough to matter?” I guess what I really want is some way I can make some extra money that would still allow me to keep doing most of what I’ve been doing. I’ve thought about trying to find people who need websites, maybe making custom geocaches, and a bunch of other different things, but sometimes they seem harder than just getting a job at some store.
I need suggestions, advice, and whatever else people want to give me, I guess. If you were in this situation, what would you do?
