Wednesday Blogger Highlight: Lacey from Donation Can

This Wednesday starts my new Blogger feature!  I will be highlighting a Blogger that I believe FTBSL readers will connect with.  Lacey and I have a few things in common.  We both adore Dave Ramsey, are passionate about being debt free and wearing affordable clothing. 

My Name is: Lacey
My Blog name: Donation Can 
 My Blog is about: Personal finance and paying off debt
Why I started Blogging: My husband and I were close to losing our dreams and marriage. We had $208,000 in debt. We went on a plan to pay everything off. I journaled privately through this time. Journaling really helped me. I thought I may be able to help others, so I took my journals public. 
What I have learned from Blogging: I've learned the power of networking.
Some of the opportunities I have received from blogging: I've been able to work with 4 other Bloggers to give back to Wounded Warriors.
What I'm most passionate about: I'm passionate about opening up the conversation of money. A lot of people, and couples, don't talk about money. Money is a natural and healthy topic. I find it a little weird that talking about sex has become more acceptable than talking about money. 
Additional Info: My blog is changing. My goal for paying off debt was to separate from Active Duty Air Force and attend college full time. Our debt is 100% paid off and I'm currently out processing from the Air Force!

Wow now that is a succes story!  Paying off $208,000 in debt!  Make sure to check out Lacey's blog and leave a comment below to say hello!  If you would like to be featured on the next Blogger Highlight Post please email me!
