Its amazing how time flies isn’t it? It seems like just yesterday we had only 20% of our mortgage paid off. Well it was about 4 months, but it hasn’t been long. Earlier this month we crossed the 25% barrier. Yay!
To give a small overview of what we are working toward – we are paying $1,000 a month toward the balance, plus tax refunds and bonuses. I am also going to start putting extra budget money that we don’t spend toward the balance which could be a bit more than $100 a week. Our goal is to have the entire balance paid off by January 1, 2015, which is about 2.5 years away. If we can do that, I will have accomplished my goal of being debt free with a paid for house/land by the time I turn 30 (I will actually be 28 at that point).
If you hadn’t noticed, you can track our progress in the side bar on the right. We have a progress bar and a countdown highlighting how far we are.
