Living like no one else.

"Live like no one else, so later you can live like no one else."
Have you heard this before?
Yes it is a Dave Ramsey saying.
It's my motto to finances.
So as you probably know we are only down to owing on our land, which we would have to sell 114 steers to pay it off as of today. Seeing how we only have 30 cows on the place and only about half are at reproducing age, that number is a little disheartening.  But really I can't complain, we have a 160 acres that we got at a BARGAIN price, seriously you can get about 5 acres for the price we paid, (ya we are lucky).
Anyways onto the post.
So since we are so debt disgusted right now (thanks to watching others make stupid mistakes). We have decided we are going to super pay our land off and then save to build our house (I'm estimating at about 300k), when should this all be about 5 years!!!
I'm so EXCITED!!!
I can handle this little POS house I live in (I may actually miss it) for the chance to build my dream house with cash, for that long.
I can handle Koda working the job he works for that long.
I will make do with the vehicles we have for that long.
Especially if we can be living in our custom built house, debt free, on our farm by the time I'm 30.
Now you may call me crazy and that this is an unrealistic venture.
But that's ok, cause it's me who will be smiling in the end. :)
Oh and yes, if I have to extend this timeline out to 10 years, I'm still doing it.
Wish me luck!
