I’ve had an ongoing 5 year plan ever since I started to pay off my debt back in 2005 and now I’m nearly done with year eight! Wow! Things have changed along the way and things will probably change in the future (I never count my chickens!), but for now, 2016 should mark the end of a twelve year journey to a dream.

Dream BIG!

What’s your dream?


In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.

    I love to see multi-year plans like this! Don’t feel bad about extending or rolling over plans. I’ve had two 5-year plans and now a 3-year plan. One has to aim high in order to achieve certain things in life.
