About Us

Hello :)

If you’re looking to get your debts paid off, earn some extra money and find financial freedom….you’re in exactly the right place

Wouldn’t it be great not to have any debt? Not to have to worry about credit card or loan repayments, and instead be able to build up your savings?

I’m Steph Addison and this is my personal finance blog.

I’m a self taught personal finance expert and I’ve got one aim at Debt Free Family, and that’s to bring you up to date, easy to understand ideas on how to increase your income and find financial freedom.

There is SO much information out there about personal finance. I got lost in it. So I decided to take the confusing jargon out of it and tell it how it is.

We know what it’s like to be broke and spent more years than we’d have liked worrying about our financial situation, but not knowing how to change it.

Why debt free family?

Our family were going to be in a much better place if we could just get on top of our finances. The stress, the worry, the counting every penny until we went into minus numbers e v e r y – s i n g l e – m o n t h …..it would all be gone. We just had to find a way.

I didn’t know where to start with a budget, believing the point of a budget was that you needed to have at least as much coming in as you did going out. I really didn’t have a clue.

At our worst, I juggled the direct debits around each month, knowing who wouldn’t cut us off straight away and who’d demand payment on the dot every month. Yet on we plodded. Each month being the same. 

Eventually, and it wasn’t a lightbulb moment in my case, it dawned on me that life couldn’t carry on like that. It simply didn’t work.

I was very envious of the families who lived debt free, or what I thought looked debt free. I know now that appearances are extremely deceptive and that the reality is that many of them were financially drowning, just as we were. 

So I started (very slowly) to look at ways I might bring in more money each month.

It’s not always been easy, but we were determined and made it a priority to see becoming debt free through. I’ve learned a lot since starting our journey, and decided to put it into a blog to share with anyone who want’s get out of a money situation they feel trapped in.

I started this blog as a way to record our own journey & to share the ways I found helpful on my own path to being financially free. I know it’s possible, and I’d love to show you that it’s possible for YOU too.  

I’d love it if you came along for the ride!
