Sending More Money to Mortgage

August 5th, 2013 at 01:14 pm

I seem to have racked up quite a few snowflakes since the beginning of August, so I'm sending them in to pay down more mortgage principal. Why wait, right?

Here's where the $157.63 all came from:

I took cash I had in my Christmas Fund to 'buy' the Applebee's gift card that came in the mail from MyPoints. It is a Christmas gift anyway. I used the Menard's rebate and Citi Rewards to make purchases, but am now taking the cash I would have spent on those purchases to send to the mortgage. Make sense? I hope so!! If not, ask me to clarify. Smile

This now means that we have paid a $6,153.91 down on our mortgage balance. Like! Like!

    Do you have a target for paying off the mortgage altogether?

    @Wino, no there is no target. We expect we will move in two to five years. Fingers crossed for five, so we can get our youngest through high school here. I just know the less we owe, the better we will be when we sell...realtor fee covered if necessary and more money in our pocket!
