Last Principal Payment for August

August 29th, 2013 at 06:17 pm

I made another principal payment towards the mortgage today in the amount of $107.70. That is the last one I will make for August. That money came from a water utility refund, a Swagbucks cash and Ebay proceeds. A little work and a little luck!

I actually made five extra principal payments this month which reduced our mortgage principal by $557.48! That is more than a regular mortgage payment reduces our principal. Smile And yes, that is the total snowflakes for the month, too.

We are still waiting on our Southwest credit card statement to close so we can start redeeming gift cards. It should close on Saturday, so we are close to getting our hands on that $500.

I sent the OBi adapter for VoIP back to Amazon. Their estimate of shipping is $5.37. That is how much my refund will be reduced. Most of my family is not real excited about permanently giving up our land line. We do actually call home when we are out to check on our kids. So, for now, we are keeping it. I might still try Ooma, but I'll be looking for a good price. Maybe used on Ebay, but need to see how that works.

    My mortgage is with USBank so I can only make one online payment a month so I just save up snowflakes and then toss. Also just so you know if you order gift cards for your Southwest rewards it takes a least 10 days. I ordered 2-$50 Walmart cards on 19 Aug and haven't received them yet. I checked online today and it said they were shipped 27 Aug so I'm hoping they will be in my mailbox tomorrow. Now that I know that, I'm going to go ahead and order the rest.

    Great job with your August snowflakes!
