I paid off my last old debt today. That particular one took about six months of saving and squirreling away. Some took longer, others not as much, and there were several surprise expenses over the last five and a half years that needed to be dealt with before the older debts, some of them quite hefty, and there were also several months of little to no income pretty soon after I started this effort that wiped out what I had begun.
The language used is archaic but the story line is simple and easy to follow. I would recommend this book as a introduction to basic financial principles to a teen, young adult, or anyone who consistently struggles with their personal finances.
Note to myself on the gist of this book :
1. Keep atleast 1/10th of what you earn as savings for yourself.
2. Use 1/5th of what you earn to repay your loans (or take loans only that much which can be repayed using 1/5th of your income)
3. Keep track of your expenditures
