A Fresh Start

September 20th, 2018 at 01:20 pm

Apparently, my company has 2 financial planners as free resources. They gave a presentation the other day, and I decided to meet with them to get some ideas. They asked me to give them a look at my financial picture, so that they could help me develop a plan. I'm still working out what information I actually want to give them, but it did force me to look at my financial spreadsheet and recalculate debt payoffs based on where I am today and some things that we're anticipating. According to the new calculations and not accounting for raises and bonuses, we should be debt free (except for the mortgage)by the end of the first quarter in 2022. If we push hard and stick to this plan, we may even be able to do it earlier. My 35th birthday is in December 2021. That'd be a pretty nice gift to myself.

    Now that is something to celebrate! Good thing you decided to look and see! Debt free is amazing!

    Debt free is amazing and worth the effort I don't know how to put this kindly . [see June 30, 2014] . but it's not good for your financial health to continue to loan your mom money.

    Thanks rob! It's something I'm so looking forward to. I'll still have at least a solid 30 years to catch up on retirement.

    Snafu, I actually stopped! When my husband and I found out we were expecting last December, we put our collective foot down. She transfers a small amount of money to me every paycheck which will continue indefinitely to sort of make up things.
