By
peso-bills

Question: Please help us. We just woke up one day realizing that we are over our heads in debt. We don’t feel like we are living the life of millionaires. We have an average lifestyle with three children all still in school. Our eldest is in 3rd year high school; our middle child is in 1st year high school; and our youngest is in second grade. We maintain a modest home, two cars (one of which is still being amortized with a bank) to avoid number coding in Metro Manila, and travel for leisure abroad just once a year.—Posted at PFA’s “ask a friend, ask Efren” service at www.personalfinance.ph
