As they work on a “total money makeover,” the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months, according to organizers of the class.
Ramsey began teaching FPU classes in 1994 every night around Nashville, Tennessee. In 1997, FPU was made available on video across the country with thousands of classes around the nation today.
The program is made up of 13 lessons taught by Ramsey on DVD.
After each lesson, the group meets to help each other plan budgets, discuss successes and temptations, and support each other in their journey to beat debt and build wealth.
Topics covered include: saving for emergencies, budgeting, relationship and money issues, buying big bargains, getting out of debt, understanding investments, understanding insurance, retirement and college planning, buyer beware tips, real estate mortgages, and careers and extra jobs.
Each class participant needs a kit. Special rates are routinely available online at www.daveramsey.com or by calling 1-888-227-3223.
Included in the cost of the kit is a lifetime family membership to FPU, allowing the participant to return to any class at anytime for a refresher course. The kit also includes an FPU workbook, an FPU envelope system, 13 audio lessons, bonus CD, budgeting forms, debit card holders, and Ramsey’s best-selling book – Financial Peace.
