I'm putting this out here in LLNOE land in hopes it will keep me motivated and accountable. I am challenging myself to pay off our mortgage by December 2015. There were 2 milestones this year, I turned 50 and we will be in our house for 20 years this month. So I have strong feelings that if I can get our mortgage gone in 2015 it would be the cherry on top!! It really should have been gone, we originally took out a 20 year mortgage but just prior to finding DR we had refinanced and that put our payoff date to June 2020.
My plan is to be gazelle intense and make a strong push to get this last debt GONE by the end of 2015! Our balance sits at about $19000.00. I will be snowballing like crazy over these next 5 months and will probably pull from sinking funds,the ones that aren't being saved for known expenses. How much I will need at the time will be determined by how well I can snowball.
I have been reading past posts, the "Who's expecting.......to payoff their mortgage" thread and other success stories for inspiration. In my comments I noticed a common response "If I can get my DH on board", well onboard or not, it is 5 months he can suck it up!!! I say that in the most loving way!!
