April Mortgage Payoff Status

May 1, 2013

April has been the most exciting month for awhile!  We were able to take 3 pieces off our mortgage-debt visual aid tool! I’m hoping that this will still keep us on course to have our home paid off by November 2013!  Sweet!

If you are new to this blog, this is our visual aid 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

We have paid of 77% of our mortgage!

The closer it gets, the more I want to work to be done with this debt!  Never thought I would see the day when our debt visual aid shows us that we are so close!!!

Recreation money: This past month I spent most of my money on a dinner with my mom and sister.  It was well worth it for this ridiculously overpriced delicious cheese plate:

YUM! Alright, until next time!

    Wow!! I love this! 77% of your mortgage gone and only another ~6 months to go! I’ve been going back and forth this month over whether I should keep aggressively paying down the mortgage or invest instead. I have a feeling I’ll end up doing a bit of both!

    That’s an awesome idea for recovering from mortage, I think you may have created a system for people to reach their goals or get out of debt! Yummy cheese platter 🙂
