Recently there was a music video that took the parody world by storm – “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” This is the type of song I would never sing…unless I was being silly and dancing around the house like a freak of nature.  Not that I would ever do such a thing. *Cough* The song is really rather vulgar. And I would NOT recommend watching the video…unless you think Speedos are sexy. Pardon me while I go gag.

Anyway, there was a SMART girl who decided to make a video called “I’m Pregnant and I Know It.” If you haven’t seen this video yet, go watch it. It’s pretty funny. :lol:  On You Tube you can be “ANYTHING and You Know It.”

My friend Tia, from Sweet T Photography, suggested that Barry and I make a video with the same song and call it, “I’m Debt Free and I Know It.”

As you might guess, this tickled me to pieces. We had SUCH FUN making this music video…and let me tell you, I got some WEIRD looks at the gas station – and a few times I was worried about getting mugged for my $20.

Barry is the voice you hear in the video – he sang it…and he’s pretty good if I say so myself. He put everything together and I wrote the lyrics.  So, enjoy.  :-D

We’re debt free….and we KNOW IT.

*Those of you on mobile devices will need to find a computer to watch.  Because we used an official karaoke soundtrack, YouTube placed some restrictions on viewing the video on mobile phones or televisions. :(

      I did finally send it to him. But I imagine he gets so much email that he’ll never see it. :-) Thanks Nicole!

    Stacy – what a CUTE video!!! I didn’t know what to expect, but I couldn’t help but smile through the whole thing. You and Barry (and Annie) are sooo cute!! We did TMMO and paid everything off, which allowed us to purchase our house back in 2010 (first home, 15 years into our marriage with three kids). We’ve gotten a little bit back in debt, plus the house… but we are dusting off our FPU stuff and getting gazelle again! Found your blog, somehow – and feel very inspired! Thanks for sharing!!

      Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!! :-) You run from that cheetah girl. And if you need any push, you give me a holler. :-)

    Hi Stacy ;)

    I’ve recently discovered your website/blog etc. and I’ve been so inspired by you. My husband and I are working towards getting debt free ourselves! I can’t wait until we can say “WE USE CASH!” We’ve actually been on the right track as far as credit cards go, we haven’t had a credit card in over 5 years. But we still have debt. Some unemployment and taking new jobs/paycuts have hurt us but we’re getting there. Two years ago was rough for us, we both lost our jobs, forced to take lower paying jobs. But I started couponing and we’ve saved so much. We used to spend 400$ or more in groceries each month but I’ve shaved that down to under $150 a month, sometimes less!!! We also lost our home to foreclosure and filed bankruptcy. But we have vowed this year and the years to come are going to be different. We’re saving $$$ in our savings account and lots of it for the first time! Thank you for being such an inspiration. Right now I’m focusing on paying our car off, taking those savings from groceries and applying it to the car to get it paid off!!! And the next house we buy we’ll be buying it with CASH! No financing for us!!! I look forward to the day I can sing along with you, I’m Debt Free and I Know it!!

    Oh my gosh, I love this video! With Dave Ramsey’s system, we have eliminated half our debt and should be debt-free in the next two years. When that happens, I’m totally celebrating by dancing to this video! LOL You should send this to Dave!

    • Stacy

      We did. :-) No response.

  • Stacy
