Monday’s With Meagan: How To Get Your Spouse On Board With Getting Out Of Debt

Hi Y’all,

So, you have decided that you want to get out of debt, but your spouse is not on board. What can you do?

I’ve been there, done that. For eight years actually. You read that right, EIGHT YEARS. I begged I pleaded, I demanded, and I threw fits that make my three-year-old look civil. And none of it worked. My husband just wasn’t interested, and I was defeated.

Luckily for me, today my husband is on board…at least I’m 98% sure he is. But it took me changing my strategy in order to get him there. In today’s video I’m discussing the mistakes I made, as well as what I did to help push him towards wanting to achieve financial freedom.

Until next time,
Meagan

Clean With Me

Hi Y’all,

I know I keep saying this, but I have been doing a lot of writing lately to try and increase our income and get us out of debt. As a result, my house has really suffered. On this day I had exactly 45 minutes of ‘me time’ before I had to go get Atlas from school. So I rushed and did a quick clean of the house.

Next year Addi will be in school full time, Atlas will be in preschool half days, and Austen *might* be in school half days as well. So I am going to try and implement a solid morning routine the involves me cleaning and the kids doing their chores, that way I can write while the littles are at school AND keep my house clean.

If that’s something you would be interested in seeing leave me a comment down below!

Melanie,
I want to let you know how truly grateful I am for you and your support over this past year. You are one of the most amazing, helpful, and caring people I know. There is no way I will ever be able to thank you for all you’ve done for our girl. I know you always tell me that it was nothing, but that ‘nothing’ has made a huge impact on our lives for the better. Every gain Austen makes can be traced back to the choice you made to have that conversation with Dr. H. ┬áThank you, thank you, thank you.
