Hello, 2012!

2012 goals are all about finances. Have I mentioned how much I love finances? I love reading about finances, paying bills, setting goals and stretching our dollar.

Jason and I were motivated by the Dave Ramsey Total Money Makeover book just after we married and eliminated all non-mortgage debt. We downsized to one car and have been living well on these principals ever since.

However, we did get off track from our long term goal of eliminating mortgage debt and that is what the 2012 focus will be. The smaller mortgage is my first goal and I’ve already thrown my first “extra to principal” at it. Woot!

It’s going to be tough this time because we have four kids sharing our love for weekend trips, movies and dining out. I’m just going to have to be creative with saving money and still keeping the fun.

    I was wondering, is that a beer Isaac is having with his lunch? Is that an unschooling thing?
