What EveryDollar Users Have Accomplished Because of Budgeting

Are you new to budgeting and not sure what to expect? We’re here to enlighten you with the help of the best source of all—current budgeters who use EveryDollar to create and manage their budgets each month.

Below you’ll see how budgeting has changed everything for them!

EveryDollar Budgeters Are Working the Baby Steps

Dave Ramsey’s proven plan for winning with money takes people from debt-heavy to debt-free and beyond in seven easy steps. And EveryDollar users make it all happen with a budget:

“We paid off $76,000 in 27 months!” – Mark M.

“We paid off debt, built an emergency fund, and put down 20% on a home—we never thought that was feasible. We’re investing in retirement and our kids’ college. Now we’re saving up for a car and the next thing will be our mortgage.” – Dusty G.

“Oh boy. We’ve accomplished so many things so far. We’ll have almost half a million dollars paid off by next summer—48 months and counting.” – Emanuel C.

“We paid off almost 80% of our debt, paid cash for vacations, started sinking funds for those once- or twice-a-year bills that we used to think were emergencies, and have $1,000 in the bank for emergencies.” – Sandra G.

“We’re consumer debt-free! We have an eight-month emergency fund! Our daughter’s college is paid for, and we’re aggressively knocking out the mortgage!! Budgeting rocks!” – Uncle Bucks World

“We’re in our second month of using EveryDollar. Last month we paid off our car.” – Loressa S.

EveryDollar Budgeters Are Cash-Flowing Life

“I paid cash for a car for the first time in over 20 years.” – Brian R.

“We paid off our house, cash-flowed a trip to Japan, cash-flowed the purchase of a new-to-us truck, and cash-flowed installing wood floors throughout our house.” – Madi

“It was several years ago, but I think my favorite budgeting accomplishment was fully cash-flowing our international adoption to bring home our son!” – Erika M.

“We paid cash for our wedding, cash for the honeymoon, and paid off three credit cards.” – Mike

“I paid thousands of dollars in medical bills with cash upon receipt of the bill.” – Christie W.
