“Last summer, we sold our house and moved into an apartment. We used the proceeds to pay off our mortgage. With this move, we’d achieved the thing we’d been thinking about since the day we’d bought our house, nearly ten years earlier. We were 100% debt-free!
We’d imagined the world of debt freedom to be a magical carefree place. So, we waited for the feeling of joy, excitement, relief, and freedom to come. Only, that feeling never came.
It didn’t take long to figure out why our newfound debt freedom wasn’t a life-changing event. When we compared our monthly budget for life in our house to our budget in an apartment, not much had changed.”
