January Mortgage Update

We are only $16 from marking off our next thousand on our chart on the fridge. I really need to just get online and sell something so that we can mark that off. One of the things that I love about goals is that they are motivating. I can feel that last $16 and it makes me want to do something about it. 

However, I look at what our goal is for the year, and I think are we ever going to be able to get to the 6k. I should have pushed a little harder before little one came, but we still have time to push. 

Breakdown of Extra Money 
  • $36.50 selling books
  • $174 selling on eBay

Since our update in December, we have been able to pay $422 from our principle. Giving us a total of $2193 for our year. Leaving us with $3807 in order to reach our 6k for the year. 


  1. This is so inspiring to see all the little steps you are taking to try to get your mortgage paid off early! I started an Etsy shop last month with the hopes of using that to help us make progress on that goal as well.

    1. Awesome, Abbi! What is your etsy shop and what all are you selling there?

  2. You guys have been doing such a great job, Lydia! You *may* consider starting a YouTube channel this year and sharing there and you might see some more income opportunities open up. Feel free to email me if you decide to do this and need a little help along the way. :)

    1. Will have to pop over and shoot you an email!
