    Default As of today my piece of "Rural Living" is all mine!

    6 years 10 months on a 15 fixed.

    My little 10 acres, home, couple of steel buildings / barns are all mine free and clear!!!!!

    2nd home I've paid off in my lifetime.

    Only thing left I owe is on my current tractor, it was 48 month 0%, so I saved it for last of course.

    Oh thank you Lord for the relief I feel today.

    Congratulations! That is quite an important milestone.
    Which is bigger?: a) $100 per month since the Big Bang or b) the US National Debt.

    Congratulations. Was the news to much for the supervisor or did he just have a long night celebrating and needed some shut eye?

    Actually an old pic, but one of my favorite of my family at our place.

    His name was Dusty, hence my "handle". He and that barn are gone now and he rests just behind where that picture was taken. He was 14 and time had taken it's toll.
    My sweet wife and I tore that barn down and salvaged as much lumber as we could. Termites, water, and time had taken it's toll long before we bought the place, that on top of the fact it was not tall enough or big enough we removed it and had a larger steel building built to replace it. That is one project we will never forget! Lots of sweat on our part.

    Pretend you still have a mortgage and put that money in the college fund.

    No kidding! We actually started a managed fund when he was born. It draws automatically as well as our life insurance.
    I am going to keep "paying the mortgage" and build up the cash.
    We are so fortunate the property taxes are low and the insurance reasonable.

    We probably look crazy on paper but we have multiple savings accounts. One for taxes, one for charity, one for emergencies, one for our son for money people give him. I want to start another for the next car (we have two that are in good shape / paid for, but want enough cash when time comes for another down the road). Might not work for everyone but works for us to at the end of each month take everything we have left and divy it out into the savings accounts and start out at "zero". I get paid once a month so we do it on payday. Put what is left in checking into the different savings and start out at zero with that months check. It has worked for us so far!
