The second of our three vehicles is now paid in full….and ahead of schedule! We now have our Honda Odyssey and our Toyota Tacoma paid in full. We have had the van for 2 ½ years (we paid cash) and the truck for almost 2 years. The only thing left is the motorcycle…which we’ve owned longer than any of them. Guess what? I’m paying that one off THIS WEEK!
Okay…this isn’t really a LITTLE thing…it is a HUGE accomplishment….but it was the little things that got us here: buying used cars, following a budget, skipping a lot of “extras” and committing to the goal of not having debt.
My husband, in particular, often struggles with “the big picture”: “How do I work so hard and I can’t have X” This escapes my realm of reality. I think we are doing FANTASTIC! Our home and student loans are our only debt.
The little things can literally add up faster than you think. One penny at a time.
