October Mortgage Payoff Status…and una sorpresa

October 16, 2013

It’s been a while folks………and here’s a little surprise:

Pregnancy announcement

Introducing the newest frugal member to our family: a baby boy is on the way!!! For the time being, we refer to him as Diego. We expect the arrival of our little Diego around mid-March and we are both soooooooooo excited!!! We are so stoked that he will come into a debt-free family!!!

With that said, we only have one more month until we are done paying our mortgage!!!!

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.  We are still on track to pay this thing off next month 😉 

In the beginning: June 2011



Mortgage debt visual aid.

September: 2 pieces removed!!!!

October: 2 more pieces removed!!!!!!

Mortgage Payoff visual aid!

Holy Moly!  Time is certainly going by fast!

Some moments from the past month:



Right after I told my High School girlfriends I was pregnant….lots of screaming was involved after they realized that the picture of my “new puppy” was actually my ultrasound picture.

Happy frugal family 😉
