It’s inspiring “meeting” others who think like me! I don’t know
anyone personally whose goal is to pay off the mortgage. I just
sent Countrywide a $1,000 check towards principal. Not sure when I
can do that again, but it felt good, empowering. It’s like I’m
sending my intention out to the universe and took a big action
We don’t use credit cards, either. If we can’t pay cash, then we
don’t buy it. My fiance is still paying off one credit card and his
car. Can’t wait for that to finally be over!!!
What action steps are you taking to pay off the mortgage? Are you
increasing the payment every month, or are you sending in checks
toward principal when you can?
