Howdy! Welcome to Alternative Money Choices. I created this blog to show you how my main and only squeeze Justin and I paid off $27,000 in 11 months. We’re just getting started with this blog, so please pardon our progress!


My goal with this small site is to inspire you to make better financial choices, and know that even the little steps toward your goals make a big difference.

I don’t want it to seem like I have it all together, or that your journey to being financially free will or should look exactly like mine. After buying a house and trying to start my own business at age 23, I got into huge amounts of debt — all while going to school and earning a living as a server.

It took 7 long years and a ton of hard work — but we can finally say we are finally debt-free, with the exception of our house. I can’t understate how amazing it feels, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t attribute so much of our accomplishment to grace and Divine Providence — in spite of our missteps and financial ignorance.

We hope you’ll find this blog a source of encouragement as we cheer you on along the way — no matter what your goals may be. As a part of our foray into learning, you might also see some health-focused blog posts and musings. So stay tuned while we make take this journey toward financial freedom — together!
