Introducing the Gee Family

Family one

Natalie doesn’t have much in the way of savings. For her it’s about paying off her mortgage early and finding the extra cash to pay for holidays.

Tell us a little bit about your family


I’m 34 years old and live with my 2 dogs. I bought my house 4 years ago and was very lucky to get on the property ladder thanks to my generous older brother who helped me financially and came on my mortgage. Last year I took him off and now own my house alone. I work full time as a Key Account Manager. This year’s new year resolution is to travel more.

Do you save or invest at the moment?


I am not saving as such but I do have a monthly standing order to my mum so that I can pay off the money I owe her. I started this in January this year after mortgaging and reducing my monthly outgoings. Any spare money is going towards traveling.

What would you like to save towards?


I save to pay off debt, holidays and little luxuries such as spa days.

Where do you see yourself financially in 5 years time?


In 5 years I hope to be 100% debt free (minus my mortgage), I currently have a 30 year mortgage, I would like to reduce this to 15 years.
