Free Printable Debt Thermometer
I’ve made this thermometer so that you can track your debt progress in 10% increments. You can wait until you hit the next increment to color in the thermometer, or you can color it in bit by bit as you get closer to the next 10% mark. You can use red to color it in, or a variety of different colors just for fun!
If you’re just starting your debt payment journey, this should help keep you motivated to get to the very top. Because imagine how excited you’ll be when you see that you’ve shaded the thermometer all the way to 90%! Then you’ll only be 10% away from paying off that source of debt, or maybe becoming completely debt free!
To double the effects of this printable debt thermometer, you may want to give yourself a reward at each 10% interval. Ideally it’d be something free, like a nice soak in a hot bath with a good book. Or maybe a day trip to see a pretty part of your city. You might even find a free event you could visit! Stay motivated, and you’ll be able to pay off your debt with no trouble!
