technically we have 4.5 years to run on both mortgages, so they would go quickly anyway. However, dh is 65 and you never know how long a job will last these days so we are thinking about doing the mortgages before ffef because if we don’t have to make that nearly $3,500 worth of house payments we could survive on retirement if dh lost his job. But then if we do the ffef then we could make the mortgage payments for awhile. I don’t want our home to be in jeopardy We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. If all goes to plan that decision will be made this time next year. Just snowballing all our cc debt SHOULD be gone by May 2013. Of course I plan on doing more than just snowballing. LOL!
Last month it looked like 24 months, so we are narrowing it down. One of the things I did to spur us on was I calculated out how much we’d pay in interest only if we let the snowball chart run its course without any extra paid in and it was nearly $13,000. Talk about kick you in the backside. Of course much of that is house debt. The Best Buy bill, next on my snowball list, after the BOA which only has about $750 left on it (down from $10,000) if we don’t speed it up is going to cost us nearly $500 in interest. NOT acceptable! So we are really hunkering down.
