Made the second prepayment today to bring the balance down to $25,189 . I've been hit by the decluttering bug -- partly because of a recent trip, partly because it's that time in the school year where I'm exhausted and sick of everything, and partly because I just have TOO. MUCH. STUFF. I just want ...

Tra la, it's May! I think I love spring even better than fall -- there's something about new leaves and tulips and fruit blossoms that just stirs the soul. Housman put it well: ...to look at things in bloom/Fifty springs are little room." Made the first pre-payment this month; after the regular...

Made the second prepayment of April to kick the balance down to $25,996! Hello, twenty-five thousandses, nice to meet you! Loving the new car. Wish I could have bought it sooner, but the financial timing is definitely better this way. Once the old car is sold, it won't take more than a few months to...

Hey everybody -- made a big life decision this week: I decided not to pay down the rest of the mortgage early, and to save up for a Tesla model 3 instead. April Fool's! :rofl: However, I *did* decide to jump on a very reasonably priced used hybrid car (Prius c) last week, using money I had built up ...

March marches onward...this month always seems to go by in a blur. No leaf buds yet, but no ice, either, so I'm happy. Except for Daylight Savings, which sucks.

Made the second prepayment this month to lower the balance to $26,799! Kicked down into the twenty-six thousandses, huzzah!

I went a little nuts and moved a bunch of money around so that I could reduce my number of goals. Changes include: - Second to last student loan was paid off. Student loan balance stands at $8300. Can't wait to kill it. - First major house project is finished and crossed off the list. We're anticip...

March has arrived! In my neck of the woods it's unseasonably warm -- not that I am complaining. I did enough shoveling and ice-chipping last winter to last me for several years. Regular mortgage payment dropped the balance to $27,264.33 ; made the first prepayment to drop it to $27,059 . Gonna knock...

Yes, Fiddlefaddle, that's true -- hadn't thought of it like that! :) Of course, I have never owned a car that would be worth that much even new, so I tend to think of car prices more in the teens range. But that'll be a fun benchmark to look forward to: when my mortgage is less than what I paid for ...

Good luck with the house purchase! Being out of the McMansion might make it sell faster, too. Sometimes empty houses sell better. Fingers crossed for you.

"OK, campers, rise and shine! And don't forget your booties, 'cause it's COOOOOOLD out there today..."

Made the first prepayment this morning to drop the balance into the 27Ks! New total is $27,870. Down, down, ever downwards...

Hoping for that early spring,

Made the second prepayment to bring the balance down to $28,410. The bank now thinks I'll pay it off in May 2022 (morons). Plus, it looks like next month the "interest" part of my payment will dip permanently below $100! Love these little milestones... I find myself thinking about having t...

Wow, good for you!! Must feel incredibly satisfying to knock it down by so much in one "swell foop."

You rock!

Happy 2016, everybody! Still trying to wrap my head around how quickly the time is going by...in three years, if I can keep going, I'll be organizing my mortgage burning party! Made the first pre-payment of the year, which, with the usual payment, brings the balance down to $28,666 . Off to the race...

Well, I had to toss my cybercookies again, but I'm now able to tell you that the final prepayment of 2015 has been made, huzzah! Here's where things stand at the end of the year: January balance: $38,261 December balance: $29,200 :rock: Next year's goal is to reach $19,780 by December 2016. Gonna pu...
