    Hello and welcome to Debt Free Forties! I’m Tana (rhymes with Donna), and I created this personal finance and lifestyle blog to hold myself and my family accountable when it comes to our finances. I wanted to track our debt repayment progress and in the process, help others find motivation with their financial situation.

    In 17 months, we paid off over $27,000 in debt. Now we’re working on saving our 3 – 6 month emergency fund so we can work towards our other financial goals.

    I’ve read a ton of personal finance books, scoured blogs, listened to podcasts, and watched plenty of financial tv shows. I love all things finance-related and still find myself learning every day as I look for new tactics to try to boost our net worth.

    I work as a web designer/developer from home full-time and have always found myself following the entrepreneur lifestyle by picking up freelance and finding side gigs. I’m a huge advocate of side hustles and using it to pay off debt or boost savings.

    I’ve been featured in several publications, including:

    There are a lot of people out there that thought they’d be further along financially in their 30s and 40s. I’m one of them. I hope you find some use of the content here and know you’ve found a friend you can talk about finances with.

    I look forward to interacting with you all and finally becoming debt-free!
