Gym Payment and other Snowflakes

February 26th, 2015 at 12:27 am

I got paid by the gym today for January - $200! I was shocked! I did sub for someone, but I haven't been paid this much by the gym ever! I drove right over to the bank and paid down mortgage principal.

We now owe $62,100.

I am waiting for the $24 pinecone payment to show up in my bank account (it already showed up in paypal and I transferred it) and then I'll pay that toward the mortgage, too.

Our mortgage payment posts on the 6th of the month and we'll be in the $61k's!

I know most people would advise us not to pay down principal but rather to put this money into IRAs, but there are two big factors which make me want to finish the mortgage: piece of mind and getting the mortgage paid off before F starts jr. high school (when our school payment will be very large).

In the meantime, we are fully funding the IRAs, too.

    It's exciting to watch you pay down that mortgage! It's like Lucky Robin's EF, CCF's (former) truck payment, and Patient Saver's mortgage. Progress is quick when there's a focus on one area. It's been inspiring to me.

    You're so nice! Progress is a lot quicker when you're just tackling one thing!

    Having just bought I am trying to figure out how to start that next year. This year is paying off all the little expenses thy cMe up this past month with the move and appliance expenses.
