Would you or wouldn't you?

If you had your house paid off would you quit your part time job that you hate because you only make minimum wage & it's a 2nd income?? I made it possible by paying it off 6 yrs early.

  • No, because owning a home is so much more than just paying a mortgage. Also, I would still need to eat. However, I would look for another job.

  • No,I wouldn't quit unless I couldn't for physical reasons beyond my control.

  • No. You still have to. Pay taxes, save for college and save for retirement.

  • No I would keep it while looking for another job. Extra money is always good to have to add to savings.

  • If I could make do without working for a period of time, yes, I'd quit a job I hated. I'd then spend all my free time finding a job I really liked.
