We have lived in our current house for five years now. In this post you…

We have been married ten plus years. We lived in a condo for four and a half years before purchasing a house. It was very exciting when three weeks ago we paid off our mortgage! The story of how we did it is all in my eBook.

One and a half years later…
Well, it has been a year and a half since we paid off our house in an unconventional way. Living without a mortgage has been a wonderful worry-free way to live. I wondered what it would be like, and I have to say I am a little surprised to report that I think we are actually MORE careful with how we spend our money now!
We have not gone out and made any extravagant purchases or taken any grand trips. I am still just as frugal as ever. We dream once in awhile of owning more property than we currently do. In our area, the housing market is extremely hot, so being able to bid on a house without our offer having to be contingent on selling our own house gives us an advantage should we find a place we like.
Dave Ramsey says to “Live like no one else, so one day you can live like no one else.” He means to drive old cars until you pay off your debts and your house, so that one day when you are debt free then you can spend your hard earned money on fancy things if you want to— completely debt and interest free!! So once in awhile I do splurge on a book that I want or craft supplies. But I still pick up furniture off the side of the road, too.
