My usual vice is shoe shopping but when it comes to my finances, the nerves always drive me to the french fries. Not just any fries folks, they have to be McDonald's fries.
During my divorce I would have given just about anything for the ground to open up and swallow me whole. I didn't want to think about the debt we were in or how we were going to split it up. I just wanted to get away.
What could have turned into a divorce battle to rival a Roman invasion, resolved itself in about three months, from start to finish. BUT.....there was a mountain of debt left for both of us.
I took some sage advice from my dad, accountant extraordinaire, and began the daunting task of organizing everyone I owed. This had to be the worst part. Putting everything down 'on paper', I used EXCEL, and adding it up.
There were may trips thru the McDonald's Drive-Thru for fries and Coke so I could clear my head and finish the job.
Tomorrow's post will outline my get out of debt plan and how it's working for me. It's so remarkably easy to follow anyone can do it.
