Reader testimony: We paid off our second mortgage 7.5 years early!
I got this email from Heidi yesterday and was so inspired by it that I asked permission if I could share it with you all:
I absolutely love your blog! A few years ago we had credit card debt and within a year was able to pay that off. We found Dave Ramsey (whom I told my husband about because of your posts) and followed the steps he outlines for getting out of debt.
Last month, we were able to take money from our savings (while still leaving a size-able emergency fund) and pay off our second mortgage 7.5 years early! The man at the bank was shocked that we saved the amount and didn’t take from our 401K.
Now we will pay ourselves back in a year and take what we paid on the second and put that towards the first to pay that one off early, as well. I can’t wait until we can say we are completely debt-free!
Thank you for all of your posts and deals. I love it! I, too, am a stay-at-home mom to two boys (4 and 6) and love reading about the things you do with your children. -Heidi
