Time To Take Our Finances Seriously
I've been blogging about personal finance now for several months. During that time one person I've heard about time and again is Dave Ramsey and his baby steps. I've gotten a basic understanding of his program through posts that other bloggers have had on their sites, but I always wanted to delve a little deeper.
A couple of weeks ago my wife and I got that chance. Some friends in our church small group decided that over the summer months they would be hosting a Dave Ramsey “Financial Peace University” class at their home every tuesday for 13 weeks. It sounded like a great chance to examine his ideas a little more in depth. We paid the $100 for the class and materials.
Opening The Financial Peace University Packet – What's Inside?
We got our package this past week, and today I decided to do an unboxing of all the things in the box, kind of like they do with new tech gadgets on a lot of the technology sites.
So when you sign up for “Financial Peace University“, what do you get? First, you get this box:
Once you open the box, this is what you see that it is chocked full of stuff:
Inside you'll find audio CDs, CD-Roms, books, workbooks and more.
Although we'll be watching the lessons on DVD with our group, the lessons are also included on CD in a nice CD wallet.
The package also includes a nice faux-leather wallet to use with the enveloping system. This promises to be a challenging thing to do for my wife and I. We're used to just paying our bills, and then saving/spending whats left over without any kind of an organized budget. Looks like we'll have to use a bit more discipline now!
And finally, they give you a couple of credit debit card sleeves with a nice reminder printed on it:
Great Kit For A Great Class
So there you have it, that is the unboxing of the Dave Ramsey “Financial Peace University” membership kit. Lots of great stuff, all of which we'll be getting into over the next 13 weeks.
During our 13 week journey I'll blog about our experience with “Financial Peace University“, and update you on some of the tips that we get from the great mind of Dave Ramsey. Stay tuned for more!
UPDATE: This kit is now outdated. Click on the link to check out an unboxing video and photos of the new 2012 Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Membership Kit.
