I just found your blog and it’s totally awesome. I love Spencer most, but it’s so great that you guys decided to go debt free. I’ve been debt free for about 5 or 6 years now, and it feels great. I have plenty of monies in the bank and always have available resources to travel or purchase anything I need/want. I only had about 14k of student debt after college and decided to get rid of it as soon as possible. It only took me about a year and a half. Making the last payment is amazing. Just seeing the $0.00 next to the amount owed is so cool. I wanted to do something to support what you guys are doing. Take this money and do something you guy’s typically don’t get to do. Go out to eat… or splurge on burritos several times in one week. This money is not in your budget, so you can splurge on stuff. Keep up the good work guys.
p.s. Everyone else that sent you stuff did cool drawings. I can’t draw, BUT, I did find this random card when I was digging through some old stuff…so I figured it would be perfect to send.
This card is from our good friend that I have participated with in various online facial hair competitions. We are happy to hear your story and that you have been doing it long before us. One of the things I admire about Matt is he is able to give freely to various charities and causes. We look forward to being able to do more and more of that. Thanks for the card and money Matt! Lots of burritos were consumed by me, oh and I did take Rachel to a movie with it.
