I love the net worth updates. I do this monthly myself and see myself in you as i get excited for $2 a month increase in principle!!! lol. A couple questions: Do you have a sample budget that you use? Also, have you considered refinancing your mortgage again? Over 4% is still pretty high. You can get a 15 year under 3% and probably wouldn’t change your payment much. Keep up the good work!
Hi Susan! Thanks for stopping by. I love watching the interest slowing fade away on the monthly interest! It’s so motivating!
As far as sample budget, I use google sheets to run my budget. Are you looking for my numbers for that or looking for a spreadsheet you can plug your numbers into?
On the mortgage, yeah I know we are a little bit high on the mortgage, but we weren’t ready to go down to a 15 year yet because we didn’t have enough equity yet not to have to bring a large sum to the table at closing so we are down to less than 19 years left… we will revisit our mortgage again pretty soon though. Our credit is great since we don’t have anything out there but our mortgage and a Kohl’s card that we don’t use but for the discount… I will have to see about the mortgage again though, thanks for the suggestion!
