A friend of mine paid off her mortgage a few months ago. She got a cake and instead of the typical "happy birthday", had them put "$0" on it. The bakery must have wondered what that was all about. When I paid off my old one, we took the payments and went on a trip a few months af...

Haven't been on the site in forever, but I knew I could come back and you'd still be plugging away, keeping the rest of us honest.

I paid some extra on my mortgage in the last year and am now at $146,000. I will pay it off in 10 years at my current payment with no extra. Hoping for 7 years by paying extra each year. I was able to max out my RRSP last year and will do so again for 2014. I'm at just over $4,000 in my car replacem...

Great job, congratulations on the progress!

So how do you like the new job? Did you end up with job stress instead of money stress?

I'm trying to balance my financial goals with also making sure I don't let life pass me by. I had a marriage breakup last year which caused me to reevaluate what is important and what I want from my life. My only debt is my mortgage of $162,700. With my current payments, that will be done in almost ...

My mortgage is just under $163K. I'm paying at an amount that will have it paid off in 12 years. I'm not in a position to add much extra to that right now, but in a few years I probably will be and hope to have it actually paid off in 10 years. I feel great for you who can pay off in the next year o...

My gut would be to pay everything extra to the credit card. Even if you think a balance transfer will be possible, you never know for sure what the situation will be when August 2013 rolls around.

You've decided that you can put $510 per month to debt. Another option is to do a debt snowball where you pay the minimum on all but one card, and put the rest of the $510 to the remaining one. That way you get rid of some balances sooner, rather than having them all done at the 6 year point. I didn...
