Here are two receipts I was about to throw away recently, but I wanted to share the change that financial discipline makes.
In September, when I started following Dave Ramsey's advice (also the advice given by Michelle Singletary), my bank account balance was $6.65! By mid-November, it was $2,000. All past due bills were paid up and I had $1000 in an emergency fund. This is tangible evidence of the difference that having gazelle intensity can make.
