January Mortgage Payoff

February 12, 2013

I have been lagging.  I wish I could blame it on the holiday season like everything else:

“Why didn’t you call me back?”

“You know the holiday times were just really busy.”

“Why haven’t I seen you lately?”

“The holidays….just really busy.”

“Why don’t you love me anymore?”

“The holidays.”

But…I can’t. Plus it wouldn’t sound good since the holidays have officially been over for a little over a month. I’ve just been lazy, and as a result, have to post two mortgage payoffs this month, for January and February!

If you are new to this blog, this is our visual aid tool for our mortgage payoff.  Every black piece represents a sum of money towards our debt. We take a piece off every time we reach the dollar value of a black piece.

In the beginning: June 2011

I didn’t reach my goal in the month of January of saving $50 of my recreation money…..instead I ate it.  I saw this button and it reminded me of me:

Fat award

Recreation money spent:

The Cellar: $21.90 for dinner with friendsBruxie: $10.69 for breakfast with a friendBottega Louie: $1.67 for some of the best macaroons I have ever eaten in my lifeItunes: $1.29 for an awesome jamSubway: $9 for sandwichesYogurtland: $5.37 for yogurt with sisterRamos House Cafe: $23.90 for lunch with a friendThe Habit: $6.70 for dinner with the same friend as directly above

Total cost on food: $79.23…..Holy Moly!!!!!! I need to tone it down.  That’s my goal for next month: tone down the dining out action.

Alright, I’m out! Thanks for stopping by!

    Congrats! You guys seem to be much more visual than I am – I just like watching the payoff date and current balance come down.

    Based on the rate that you guys are taking pieces off, your mortgage will be gone by the end of this year?
