    Woohoo! I stumbled on this while looking for a way to install a carPC in my new-to-me 4Runner...

    I love Dave Ramsey! He got me out of debt, too, and changed my whole way of thinking, financially speaking.

    Epilogue

    We paid off my wife's debts ($42K in student loans and credit cards) in October of 2010. We also put $30k down on a house that we bought out of foreclosure. The house payment is about 15% of our take home pay.

    We have an emergency fund of 6 months of expenses, and are contributing the maximum allowable amounts to 401k's and Roth IRA's.

    About a month after my last post, the company I worked for was purchased by an Indian firm and my pay was cut by 30%. I am still able to do all of these things because of my adherence to these principles.

    I am curious, though, how well the folks that bragged about flipping houses and how I was silly for not doing the same fared the last two years...

    Dave Ramsey cultist here -- just finished the FPU classes a few months ago. I can happily say I haven't really overdrawn any of my accounts since, we'll have Baby Step #1 finished and #2 halfway taken care of when we get our taxes back (a few weeks). It sucks living on cash, but it sure beats the hell out of living in debt.
