    Baby steps to mortgage freedom for beanielou.

    Baby steps to mortgage freedom for beanielou. 4th Nov 14 at 2:19 PM
    My first thread on the MFW board!!
    My mortgage has 6 & 1/2 years left to run.
    My income seems to decrease more & more & it becomes more & and more of a challange to pay my hefty(to me) mortgage.
    I have managed an overpayment last month as I got some £££'s unexpectedly.
    My biggest fear is not being able to pay my mortgage & loosing my home.
    So I have decided that baby steps are the way forward~even a fiver or a tenner overpaid in a month is better than nothing.

    Excuse me for popping in to your diary. I lurk and read and don't post, however, i think you are an inspiration.
    The reason for coming out of lurkdom is to say to Eager Elephant that your mailbox is full so I can't PM you .....
