Progressing nicely!

March 5th, 2012 at 03:01 pm

I schedule another mortgage principal payment for tomorrow. As of tomorrow, the mortgage balance stands at $203,598.00. I cannot wait to be under the $200K. Total 2012 extra principal amount paid is $8,290.60. Woo Hoo!!!


Car loan balance is $19,355.79. I'm almost doubling the payment. So excited! The goal is to pay off both vehicles in the same exact month.


We were thinking of purchasing a home in Florida but opted to stick to our goal of becoming debt-free, including the house by 2018. If everything goes according to plan and Murphy does not strike, I'll be 48 and hubby 58 years old. Technically, my husband can retire at that age and receive a small pension.


I earned $10 amazon gift cards from Swagbucks and another $10 from Synovate Surveys (Crystal from moneysavingmom.com recommended this site) and so far so good. I can redeem the voucher at Amazon also. I want to use this money to buy graduation party decorations and 2012 paper products.

I'm purchasing the tickets tonight to see Evita on Broadway the Saturday before Mother's Day. My son is gifting me the train ticket ($26) and I'm using the $40 I got for Valentine's Day for my dinner. It's not cheap, the ticket alone is $150, but it's so worth it. I wish I could do this every month. I love, love Broadway.

    I saw Evita in Chicago many years ago and it was fabulous!

    I think you are really wise to put off the second home in FL until after you have the insurance of being out of debt. That will lead to a lot more flexibility for you, and less stress!
