I revised my goals for 2011 a couple months ago when Y and I decided to put more emphasis on our mortgage. We had 3 goals for the remainder of 2011. Here they are from a previous blog post:
1. Have Mortgage under $50,000. It's currently at almost 56K. This will really be pushing it.
2. Keep savings at $30,000. Our savings is at this point but I need to include it so I just don't rob our savings to accomplish number 1.
3. Have student loan under $6000. This will mean paying an extra $200 to it. This is doable but I really want to do it.
We are on pace to do it.
Mortgage: I made a $4000 payment today to the principal which will put us about $20 under our $50,000 goal.
Savings: I don't have a solid number for this for November but it should be around $33,000.
Student Loan: I have one more regularly scheduled payment which will put me below $6000.
I still can hardly believe it. These were really stretch goals and we accomplished them. I had a huge commission check this month of just over $8000 which was what made them doable for it. I worked my butt off in October and it really came through on my check today.
