I am just starting to learn more about Dave Ramsey.

He's right about the car -- it is like a noose around my neck! We got it 2 years ago when finances were much, much better.

I also love the "80 % behavior and 20 % math"! I'm working on changing my behavior, and it's not easy!

Sherry thanks for the comment. Luckily for us the car has never been the noose, we don't buy brand new cars and make sure our payment is in the $200 range.
