Going for a simple life
Erika Madrid, wife of U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. George Madrid, a 35th Logistics Readiness Squadron quality assurance evaluator, shows two different parallels of her life. On the left is a cluttered life with too many toys bought all at once and the other side a simple lifestyle with focus and control over her finances. The Madrids ensured good stewardship of their finances, paying off $230,000 in four years, to avoid passing debt onto their children. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Senior Airman Sadie Colbert)
