The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me on ‘My Money Mission 2018’.

I have been thinking about starting this blog for a while to document our progress on reducing our spending and increasing our mortgage payments in 2018.

Currently our mortgage is due to be paid off the month we turn 65. I am not, and will not, be in a position to retire before the mortgage is paid off and so I am going to be trying to make additional payments each month.

So far this year I have overpaid £75 – only £25 a month but it all helps and you have to start somewhere.

I aim to reduce my outgoings, as well as increasing my incomings. Every little helps as they say. I am hoping that by having this blog, and documenting the progress, that the motivation and determination to pay off early will continue.

  1. Paying off my mortgage in record time is my major goal – I can be a bit competitive, so I set myself a big challenge! Looking forward to seeing your progress this year. Every little helps 🙂
