02-28-15 – Saturday – Another Debt Paid Off!

paid in full
Today marks a day to celebrate as I have made a final payment to Capital One Auto. Yes, all debt is payed off other than the mortgage. This was a loan for a Hyundai Sante Fe we purchased because we really did need a four wheel drive vehicle with all of the off road hiking sites we were visiting. It was set up for 60 months, or 5 years. We managed to pay it off in just 16 months. It was the last debt we needed to pay off to declare our independence from debt other than our mortgage. It was through daily discipline in spending that allowed us to focus totally on paying it off and I couldn’t be any happier.

Many would say, “Hey Billy, you are debt free”. Well not so fast. I still have a long way to go to get the mortgage paid off. Many don’t consider your mortgage to be debt simply because they put place it into the category of living expenses. But truth be told, as long as interest is being paid on any form of loan it is still debt. So on to the next step. The mortgage.

    Congratulations! Is great being down to ONLY the mortgage, isn’t it?

    I paid off my car September last year, and it was such a relief. As you might have seen on my blog, I’m working really hard on my house mortgage as well, having paid a larger lump sum towards it earlier this year. I’m now down 2/3 in only 8 years, only 1/3 left to go… 😉

    It might take me a few years yet to finish, but ultimate goal is to slice 10 to 11 years off the original timeframe (which was 25 years).. Sort of like you changing it to 15 years 😉

    Again, congratulations!
