Pocket Poor

Hi everyone!

Back with a bit more info on us.

Me and hubbs in our early 40’s. I work part time, hubbs is full time. Our daughter also works full time.

We are in our third house. We bought it for £188,500 and put a deposit down for £97,500. We love it here and doubt we will move again.

We are aiming to be mortgage free within the next couple of years to give us more choices in life, plus we love to travel, although this is on hold while we chip away at the mortgage ;)
