New Furniture, Less Debt & More

June 13th, 2014 at 09:47 am

I made a large principal payment on our mortgage debt yesterday. My plan this entire year is to send $275 each time we are paid on the 15th of the month. So far I have been able to do this every month this year. I added $18.86 to that payment, which is money I have accumulated in snowflakes this month. Not much, but it adds up!

We made a purchase on Craigslist last night. I have wanted an entertainment center for our basement television since we moved in almost two years ago. We have tried many different pieces of furniture we own and currently have the tv on a too small cart. It works, it is free, but it isn't quite right.

We purchased this upgraded entertainment center for $125. It is only six months old according to the previous owners. It is not solid wood, but for our needs it is perfect. I'm not even bothered by the little water damage on the top. All other entertainment centers I've been interested in were over $300 so this is a significant savings. Once we are feeling better we will make the switch. Smile

Despite being sick, earlier this week, and still recovering today, I have been able to stay a little organized. I wrote about this on [url=http://yourorganizedfriend.blogspot.com/2014/06/sick-but-keeping-up.html]Your Organized Friend[/url] yesterday.

Did you make an extra payment to your mortgage this month? Do you sell on more on craigslist or buy?

    Love your craigslist find! I have two couches I love found on craigslist, plus the other couch found at Goodwill. And my dining room is a hodge podge of complimentary styles found at an estate sale and a resale store. Smile

    I am actually kind of scared to buy anything off of craigslist from a past experience, but I get so jealous looking at other peoples' finds. The entertainment center looks great! When I moved out, top of the line furniture was definitely not on my list, so we ended up purchasing most of it from Wal-Mart. Each piece was under $120 so I think we did pretty good.
