Snowflake Update

December 27th, 2013 at 07:10 am

I received $25 from Swagbucks and $25 in USAA rewards this week in our checking account. I used the $10 Target gift card towards groceries this week. And we spent $2.99 in Amazon.com credits to watch a movie online last night.

All the funds above total $62.99. I sent that amount to pay down the mortgage principal. That might be the last one for the year, but I'm open to a few more snowflakes if they fall before the end of the year.

With this last payment it has pushed our mortgage balance under another $1K milestone. So the balance is now like this $XX8,992.99. I think we will be able to get at least that $8K plus change paid off this year....and probably a little bit more. I'll update the goal and plan on that soon.

We are still working on getting our recent repair on our van covered and paid by Honda Care. My husband is going to walk into the dealership today to get it taken care of. Fingers crossed. We don't have any reason to think it won't be covered. They didn't have our Honda Care information, and just seemed to be too busy to handle it when we called last Saturday.

Any one new going to track snowflake money next year? Will you use it to pay down debt, save for a goal or both?

    I don't know if I'll track it, but I plan to send plenty of flakes to my mortgage balance. I'm trying to get it paid off by 2017!

    I definitely SHOULD be tracking snowflakes. I'm terrible at keeping up with spreadsheets, so perhaps I'll do it in my phone or on paper. I would love to know the total snowflakes for each month and year! Would really help me get an idea about how successful it is.

    Good job! Every little bit definitely counts. I started tracking mine a few years ago and I am constantly amazed at how the little bits add up.
