November Mortgage Update

Pretty sure this is by far my favorite debt free scream. If you haven't listened to any of the others, I encourage you to listen to this one. Great story of redemption!

My husband and I were just talking the other day about paying off our house and how we would like to get the mortgage paid off completely in 10 years. I love watching our mortgage chart on our fridge get lower. Super close to marking off the next $1,000!
Breakdown of Extra Money

  • Gift Cards- $76
                   My mom used some of my gift cards at a store I don't go to very often. Trade off for cash!
                   I am excited for a new month in order to get more free listings on ebay. Ready to list more!
                  my husband needed to get a new computer and it came with a rebate. 
  • Huntington offer- $270
                 Offer of opening a checking account doing 10 transactions and then getting paid. Not bad money for a little bit of my time!


Since our update in October, we have been able to pay off $733 from our principle. Giving us a total of $2,810 for our 2nd year so far. $2,804 to go before next July in order to hit our goal of 6 grand this year. Half way there! Promising that we will be able to make our goal.


  1. You guys are doing an awesome job, Lydia! And guess what? We've had things for sale on ebay probably every day for the last few weeks. :)

    1. That is great to hear about your eBay sales, Sandra! If you don't mind sharing with me you ebay name, I would love to stalk you!

  2. Way to go, Lydia! You've got an excellent saving scheme, so I strongly believe you’ll be able to make it through with your financial goals. By the way, Clay’s journey is truly something that's very inspirational. Thanks for sharing it with us, and I wish you the best of luck on your financial journey. Cheers!

    1. Thank you Tasha for the encouragement! We are still slowly plugging away. Can't wait for the mortgage to be gone!
