My posts lately have been few and far between. I’ve been busy as a little bee working on projects for my Spring Sale along with fighting some kind of cold/allergy/crud thingy.
But, last Saturday I go to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of years now.
What? You might ask.
Not bungee jumping, not sky-diving, not zip-lining…..
I got to attend Dave Ramsey’s The Total Money Makeover Live in San Antonio!!!
Maybe not so exciting to some, but we’ve been following Dave’s principles for almost four years, have read his books, taken his Financial Peace University class and sat in on a simulcast by him. I wanted to experience the excitement and enthusiasm that comes from seeing him live.
I won’t go into details about his program; he has a great site that does all that. But it is the one financial program I’ve found that is easy to follow. I’m a box checker and he has seven baby steps to follow. Perfect! When we get one done, then we move on. And his zero based budgeting is so simple. You work backwards, taking the money you make for the month and designing your expenses around that. Most other budgeting tools have you figure out percentages and expenses first and then try to fit that into your salary. I’ve tried that, it’s stressful.
We’ve fallen off the wagon a couple of times and struggled to get back on, so Saturday’s event was just what I needed to kick it back into gear.
Here’s a few shots of the arena. Again, taken with my phone, so blurry is the theme.

This is Jessa. Her parents are starting her early.
Any other Dave followers out there?
