5 Months From Now...

Five months from now, we will be out of debt. Five months. Five. Months.

If all of my calculations are correct (including our new estimated $6K due for taxes) and my guesstimates on what we'll owe in interest, we should have everything (minus our car) paid off by the end of July.

This is just in time for our trip back East and for our celebratory vacation trip to Mexico. I can not wait. We've been a little less focused since the holidays, but it's time to pull it back in and get this thing done. That way we can come back from our trip refreshed and ready to start the next phase of our journey.

We're tired of living in an apartment and we want to own our own place. Paying these bills off are the key to saving enough for a down payment. It's essential we do this.

We've come A LONG WAY and are in the home stretch. 5 more flips of the calendar and it will be over. Ahhhhh, motivation, where are you? I need you back.

Questions : What do you do to help motivate you to stay on track?


  1. Congratulations, you've come a looong way!!

  2. That is amazing! Congrats. :-) I book myself a massage (not particularly frugal) when I finish a big fitness milestone.

  3. That is wonderful!!! Keep up the good work =)

  4. I get motivated by bloggers like you, who are so near the end of their journey.

  5. Wow! Congrats! That's an amazing accomplishment--you definitely deserve a vacation after paying off all of your debts!
