Today is my birthday and that seems like a great time to me to reflect on where we were at financially one year ago!
June 2018 -
We owed $134,871 on the mortgage
We owed $22,440 on the truck
We owe $122,418 on the mortgage
We owe $13,471 on the truck
That is a reduction of $21,422 of debt in one year. While I am decently proud of that number, it actually doesn't feel like enough for one year. We had a few unexpected expenses the last year that cut into our snowball, as well as our vacation we took.
We are hoping to double our debt pay off by this time next year (if not, even better). Part of this is pretty doable as we just wrote our very last check to daycare! We will no longer have a $928/month daycare bill starting July 2019! Our first plan is to roll that payment directly to our truck debt and finish that up ASAP.
