Great work, keep going! And good on you for finding the 'workaround' to pay off that smallest loan. All those funny little rules would really annoy me - I bet it's going to feel so good when you have paid them all off and you don't even have to worry about those weird conditions hey? I am focusing o...

Congratulations on your great progress in 2013, sounds like it was a fantastic year.

And good luck in paying off the mortgage in 2014. What an amazing feeling that would be. Do you know what you plan to do with the extra cash once the mortgage is gone?

So a lot happened since I last posted in February 2013. Since around March I've been living by myself, so of course it's been more challenging to meet the goals I set on only one income. I've also changed jobs and got a slight pay rise, which was lovely. Goal One: Pay $20,000 off the mortgage Result...

Thanks all. The move was incredibly stressful and I'm flip-flopping between being excited about this whole home-ownership business to being completely overwhelmed by the responsibility and all the improvements we'd like to do. ONE STEP AT A TIME! So, I thought I'd take some time out from stressing a...

Hi Adeline, good to have you join us! Not that I'm an expert, but I think building up your cash reserves is a great idea. With a rental property and a child, it's good to have a big cushion. You and your husband might want to agree on a target amount (for example. $10k) and then break it up into sma...

Get well soon, and congrats on meeting your 2012 savings goals!

I like the idea of systematically 'winterizing' your place - good for $$, good for the environment.
