This week I had the opportunity to guest post on Northern Expenditure!  I have been an avid reader of Maggie’s blog for a while now.  It’s an incredible website.  You will be able to find answers to many of your financial and travel questions there.


Please head over to Northern Expenditure to read my guest post!!!

Mustard Seed Money

Welcome to the website. A mustard seed is a very small seed but astonishingly grows very large over time. My hope is that through your financial journey that your small investment in time, money and faith will grow beyond anything that you could ever imagine.


  1. Just wanted to say I really liked your story.

    Never thought of it this way. We choose investing over paying off, mainly because we already pay it off in small bits (because of regulations). But paying off more would mean we have no mortgage costs when we reach FI (and we need less money to cover expenses in the first place). Really something to think about. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great post! We have a chance to be mortgage-free if we save 50k over the next year. It’s so true what you say though: before when I didn’t have to work for money I was free to consult and take summers off. Now that we have the goal of paying off this mortgage, I feel the weight of having to hold on to this job so that we can be free of that albatross. 7.5 years is a great accomplishment, congrats!

    • Taking summers off sounds AMAZING. I bet you came back super recharged and ready to tackle the world. Keep up the hard work with your goal in mind. Sounds like you will reach it VERY soon. Congrats!!!

  3. Nice work, man. This is pretty much my blueprint as well. I’m glad you ran more precise analyses as I had an impression I’d be leaving investment dollars on the table. Target to pay off our mortgage coincides with the end of our 5/1 arm at 2.625% – right at early retirement goal line in Feb 2020. Agree with you on work dynamics too – crazy how much easier the game becomes when you’ve wrestled control of your goals.

    • The work dynamics has been such an amazing secondary benefit that I never thought about when I was paying off my mortgage. I’m glad to hear that the numbers helped!!!

  4. Just lurking around and found your blog.

    Keep the articles up, I’ll be reading them onwards.
