Let this be your income building up, instead of heading out.

I know when I first started taking an interest in personal finance, one term I heard pop up frequently was that of the debt snowball. For those new to the concept, it is a debt paydown strategy, popularized by Dave Ramsey, where you pay down your debts in order from smallest to largest.
