Mortgage Meter

February 13th, 2011 at 06:46 pm

I didn't have much to do today.....DH turned on some Netflix and I sat at the kitchen table and made a Mortgage Meter. I took a few large pages of accountant lined paper, taped them together and labled each line from $160K - $0 in increments of $1000. Then I drew a large thermometer going through all of the pages. Then I took a pink highlighter and filled in the lines from $160K - $135K. Everytime we get under another $1000 mark (we should go down at least $1000 each month) I can highlight the next row. Smile Dorky I know, but visual motivation helps me. I put it on the side of the fridge and DH laughed at me. Smile

    Oh, that's an awesome idea. I love my spreadsheets, but the idea of having it right there on the fridge in technicolor every time you get something out of it or are putting something away, would be a powerful motivational force, I think. DH may be laughing now, but you'll be laughing all the way to the bank as each payment gets marked off.

    I think that's a good idea. Smile
