In 2013 we set a big goal for ourselves. We wanted to save $20,000 by the end of the year. We were never reckless spenders with our money so this goal wasn’t especially difficult for us but we did have to make some sacrifices and we did have some arguments to get us on the same page. But once we accomplished that goal we were inspired and excited to find another goal.
Next we set our sights on paying off our mortgage. We wanted to pay it off in 5 years. Then we sat down and looked and the numbers and the possibilities and decided we could pay off our 30 year mortgage in 4 years. Now we are on a mission. It’ll take sacrifice, but we both feel sure that in the end it will be worth it. This is our journey to actually owning our home.
Our posting schedule is Monday and Wednesday. Posting schedule is subject to change if I think of more stuff.
And in case you’re like me and want to see who is writing this stuff so you can visualize us in the stories or are just generally curious here we are:
Fun side-note. At least 50% of both of our outfits are either from thrift shopping or hand-me-downs.
