I love stupid graphs

Like, if I conceive that my life is not spending money so every day I can put $333 more toward the mortgage, then my current progress looks like this.

Which looks worse than it actually is.  As a pie chart…

I’m already thinking about paying the mortgage down more with savings… mainly because I want to feel a sense of progress.  But the way to do that would be to pay the March payment…  But I need to keep the money so that I’m in a better position if I have a sudden job change.

It’ll be cool when I break out of the single digits of percentage progress… that should happen at the end of day on 31 January.  Two days before, I’ll have received my paycheck.  So that’ll be a good weekend.  That’s next weekend!

Here’s what my progress looks like if I measure it by what I’ve paid down so far and what I could pay down while holding back 2 months of emergency fund.  Which is a lot more encouraging…

And if I look at it based on the original amount owed ($122k)…

Even better!  But Considering I’ve lived here for 6.5 years… I mean really I should’ve been finished already.
