Great advice, thank you. I will make sure that I write my goals down and the reasons for achieving them in order to keep motivated. I also think it is important to review the goal if you become demotivated - work out why you are demotivated and see if you need to change your goal.

Once I had enough in my emergency fund I would start paying off my debts with the highest interest rate first. I think it is best to pay of debts before saving unless you are going to use it to pay off the debts in the end.

Well good for you for coming out of this one fighting. I have been educating myself about money over the last 5 years but it sounds like you had to learn a lot, very quickly and you did well.

That is great. One of the most important lessons I think that we can teach our children is how to live frugally, save well and not get into debt. This means that they will have the opportunities of building up a good retirement sum.

You may be able to be a stay at ho...

Wow that is fantastic. It is my goal to have our mortgage paid off in 5 years. We still owe £91800 and the interest is nearly £500 a month. My husbands salary covers the interest and our bills as well as some savings so I am working as hard as I can so that I can put every penny I earn towards payin...

Sounds like you are doing the right thing. I imagine that it is very exhusting but you must be really focussed to be working so hard - good for you and keep it up!

That is fantastic, well done. I always find it very inspiring when I read suces stories - I am trying hard to pay off my mortgage and when I hear of other people paying off debts quickly it makes me realise that I can do it too.

I find that when I first set a goal I am totally commited for a while. However, after a while I have trouble staying focussed. Does anyone have any tips on how I can keep my focus?

What an interesting post, I had never thought about exercise being frugal. I guess it makes sense if you think that you are less likley to get unwell and so you will have less medical expenses, less time off work from illness etc. In the UK you can also get cheaper life insurance if you can prove th...

My favourite books are definately the Mindstore series by Jak Black. He uses techniques similar to those described by Napoleon Hill but he packages them in a way that I find easy to understand and use.

I can understand how this must be very depressing. I have a £100,000 mortgage and I am desperate to pay it off but the interest is high. It sound slike you have tried everything to reduce the interest as much as you can. I would therefore just concentrate on paying off as much as you can each month....

What a great article. I would say that the most important thing you mention is to set a goal. It can get quite tough, saving money, especially if there are sales on or you see something that you really want to buy. If you have a goal and know in your mind why you are doing this then it will help to ...
