68 Of The Most Inspiring Debt Freedom Stories Ever

Do you dream of being totally debt-free one day?

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like not to owe anyone?

Have you already set your sights on a debt freedom date (mine is August 2021)?

Before I boldly declared my debt freedom date and became serious about creating a debt-free life for myself I would try to get out of debt but never was able to make much progress.

I felt like something was wrong with me until I learned a ton more about motivation, willpower, and mini-habits.

Through my studies I was able to craft a debt freedom plan that works for me and I have seen a dramatic difference in my ability to achieve my financial goals.

One of the things that I do to remain focused on my goals is consume stories about other people who have already reached debt freedom.

This practice gives me the daily dose of motivation that I need when I am tempted to spend excessively on things I don’t necessarily NEED (i.e. new clothes, furniture, vacations, stuff on Amazon, etc.).

Here is a list of the most inspiring 68 debt freedom stories that I have come across on my journey to debt freedom (I hope these stories motivate you to maintain your intensity as you work towards debt freedom or rekindle your desire to be debt-free!).

The stories are listed in categories; (1) $10k-$49k, (2) $50k-$99k, (3) $100k+ and (4) other inspiring stories:
