This is a long post.
I need to be honest with you. Today I am bringing up something I’ve never talked about before🤭
While it appears life is fun and laughter all the time, it isn’t. Surprise!😂
💵We budget. A lot.
We do a pretty darn good job at having fun on a tight budget—
🚣🏻♀️Kayaking is free, since we already own the kayaks.
🧗🏻♀️ Hiking, climbing, and visiting places covered with our parks pass (it practically pays for itself) are other great free activities.
While all this budget traveling is happening, something else is happening.
Let me explain
🤫We are NOT 100% debt free.
🏡We have a house with a mortgage (unknown to most of you). It has had renters for several years, but we still own it.
🚐We have an expensive truck.
🌲And a piece of property.
💸And one other random loan.
This means while we travel on a budget, we are also accumulating interest!😬 YIKES.
We make our payments every month but that doesn’t get things paid off efficiently.
WHAT I AM GETTING AT IS:
Sometimes we stop traveling for a few weeks or months and we take care of our adult things.
We work. We pay off some debt. We put a new roof on the house. We take care of the essentials.
After a phase of adulting, we hop back on the road and budget really well until we are ready to pay off another chunk of “debt”.
This all being said the next 6 weeks of posts will be throwbacks from this winter. Right now isn’t play time, Louis is working his butt off 10 hours a day and I’m working when I can, so we can get one step closer to being debt free💸
Are any of you on a debtfree journey? Tell me about it!
