Mortgage Payoff update 7/2012
This is an update of our mortgage payoff status, we are projecting that we will be done sometime between July to September of 2013. Each black piece represents an equal amount of money towards our mortgage. I try to post an update the last Thursday of every month. In April of 2011, we started here with our mortgage payoff visual aid:
Dave Ramsey, you would be so proud 😉 Last month’s progress, June 2012:
As of July, 2012, we were able to take off two more pieces, looks like we are ALMOST halfway there!!!!
We also keep a separate “HIS” and “HERS” recreation account each month. This is an equal amount of money we both can spend each month without accountability to each other. Usually we spend it on something we want for ourselves: magazines, books, going out to eat with friends, etc. This month we gave each other $75.00 to spend, and it looks like I already ate it, literally.
$15-JC beans (my favorite coffee shop)
$12-Stater Bros. Market
$9- Crepes de Paris
$75 spent on food….I am a HEIFER!!! What a wake up call!!! Let’s see if I can do better next month!
JC Bean, How I love you, why must you destroy my budget?
Questions for you: What do you spend your extra money on? Do you have something you are saving for?
