Great suggestions. I'm doing all but the high interest checking and selling our stuff (though we've done the latter in the past). I highly recommend (as I know you do, too) starting at the top of the list and doing what you can to grow you income and/or launch a business.

I'm working on side business, which will eventually be my full-time business. I can't wait! :)

As I've gotten older, I find that I am happier with fewer possessions. So much so that I have been selling off things that I don't use on a regular basis -- the extra TV, the second lawn mower, etc. Not only does this clear up space, but I can use that cash for things that mean more to me now, like travel with my wife.

I read somewhere that the greatest happiness with possessions occurs during the anticipation phase; in other words, while you are actively researching and shopping. Once it is acquired, the object starts to decline in its happiness factor for you. After a few months, you are no more happy than before the purchase.

I love credit card rewards. They don't take any extra effort and you get a free discount (or extra money depending on how you look at it). You can make bigger strides in other areas, but this one is so simple.
