The primary reason for creating Deeply in Debt was to have a place to document our family’s journey to be debt free. We enjoy sharing the ways we increase our income, simplify life, and cut expenses. We love hearing from readers about their own debt free and financial journeys. We love having a place where we can encourage one another in our financial goals.
If you have been around here for any length of time a while, you know that we are doing what we can to reduce our spending and increase our income so we can pay off our student loans as soon as possible. While we would never to anything to compromise our integrity, we do hope that advertisements and affiliate relationships will contribute a little something to our quest to demolish our debt.
