Hi, I’m Jennifer. I started Getting Ahead 5 years ago after moving to Ohio from Colorado. I needed an outlet and we needed to live a more frugal life. We have come a long way in the last 5 years, but frugality is a work in progress. Financial freedom is a journey. We follow the Dave Ramsey plan for our finances and are debt free except the mortgage. With 4 kids though, this doesn’t mean we are home free. It is a constant struggle to stay out of debt when faced with the rising expenses of life (braces!). Join me on our journey to financial freedom through frugal living.
