I have decided this will be the year I get out of debt. I have a good job, but after my divorce in 2005, I accumulated too much debt as I struggled to pay my mortgage and bills on my one salary.

I will be writing about the things I do to get out of debt and what works for me and what doesn't. Hopefully, you can use some of these tips to help you get out of debt, too!

You can follow my activities at Debt Free Amy as well or on twitter.

UPDATE: Call it The Secret or whatever, but a few months after I posted this, I was in a horrible rollover car accident (not my fault). I ended up using the settlement money to pay off most of my credit cards and with the money I then was saving each month, I paid off the rest. I am officially debt free and have been for most of this year! I don't recommend getting in a car accident as a way to pay off debt (it was very scary and I had numb fingers for months), but it worked out for me in the end!
