I absolutely love saving money! It’s become like a game to me. Maybe it makes me feel like I’m getting one over on ‘the man’ or something. And in an effort to pay our mortgage off 12 years early, we do everything we possibly can to save money.
I strive to save on groceries, eating out, clothes, gifts, gasoline, etc. You name it, and I want to save money on it.
My main motivation for saving money is to pay off our mortgage in the next 2-3 years. Every dollar saved is in honor of that goal.
Our objective is to pay $25,000 toward our mortgage principal this year. All the money I save, plus any other extra money we have gets applied specifically to the principal. We’ll save tens of thousands of dollars in interest.
