Pause.

This is really hard for me to wrap my head around, but we are pausing our debt payoff journey for the month of June.  I feel a little guilty and disappointed, but I know it is for the best.  We are not contributing anything extra to debt for June, but instead, are paying for some […]

Tip Tuesday

Money Tip Tuesday

Time for another tip. This tip not only helps us save money, but it is also a more “earth friendly” habit we have formed. Ditch the paper products. Skip the paper plates, paper napkins and paper towels. The easy swap is to use your actual dishes instead of paper plates. Try investing in cloth napkins […]

Meal Plan Monday

Meal Plan Monday (5/15/18)

So this is week two of our big grocery haul. It’s going well so far, but you never know what it will look like by the end of the week. We might be eating some pretty crazy “meals” by then. This is what we have planned for the week: Breakfast Oatmeal Eggs/egg hash Lunch Leftovers […]

Financial Goals

May Goals

April was quite a ride!  We had a lot of vacation expenses due all at once – airfare, October vacation condo payment and the final payment for our May vacation.  (Note: we did not go into debt for either of these condo rentals – the payments are made in installments per the lease agreement through […]

Financial Goals

Financial Check – In: April

I’m going to try and update our progress toward debt payoff and our 2018 financial goals at the end of every month.  I think this will help keep us accountable and give us even more motivation to get things paid off.  I would love to hear how others are progressing in their debt free journeys […]
