We Paid Off Our Mortgage Today!

Finally!  Paid it off early, but I am so glad to get that over with.  This house is becoming a money pit, but at least it is now paid for.  Now, we can start doing all of those little things, like the kitchen floor, that we have put off.  Our savings account is not as full, but I am so thankful that we were able to do this.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Good for you. Money pit is right. We did the kitchen last winter. The main bathroom next month. The porch and deck hopefully next spring plus windows.

Congrats! We paid our house off in March 2018, and then we were able to build a 3 car garage on our extra lot last Fall, Next project is a new kitchen next Spring. Such a great feeling! Enjoy!

Re: We Paid Off Our Mortgage Today!

Congratulations @sxmgirl!   Nothing like the feeling of making that final payment and knowing you own your home free and clear.   

 

We built our house in 1981, and paid it off in 1992.   We turned it into a memorable occasion; our girls were present and afterwards we celebrated by eating at Ponderosa!   The girls still remember that big day, and I surely remember the relief of no more house payments!   

 

Enjoy this new freedom!
