Debt-Free for the Holidays: Economic Reality Check

Debt-Free for the Holidays: 
An Economic Reality Check

We are all familiar with the term “reality check”. It’s what we ask from ourselves and others when we suspect a disconnection from reality. When we suspect that the glasses we are looking through have been overtaken by seagull poop and the ability to see what is really going on is limited.

Debt-Free for the Holidays

Adam Baker is committed to causing a movement. A movement that breaks the cycle of collecting things and making our life about funding and financing those things. When I first watched this TEDxAsheville video, I was reminded about the debate I had with myself when I moved from Southern California to Northern California. I wanted to put everything I thought I might want later in storage, just in case. Then I asked myself, “In case of what?”

I got up early to get a head start on work to find my parents sleeping late in my guest room (which doubles as my home office). So frustrating. I can’t get anything done around here.

Can you relate?

As I write, I’m listening to my father talk to my husband about the possibility of prep school for my son. Who is two. Eye roll.

Can you relate?
