You all know my big mortgage goal- to pay off the mortgage in 1 year and 8 months. But the in between times can get boring. I have to wait a whole 30 days between payments! Oh poor me :(
The last 2 payments have been made after my second paycheck for the month because my accounts were so low after the house re-hab fiasco. My next mini-goal is to be able to make my extra payment at the beginning of the month again like I used to do last year.
I think this plan will work for April. April 1st and payday are both a week from Wednesday. If I get a rent check on time (I am very optimistic) I should have enough money in the bank to make my extra payment on April 2nd. This is exciting because it actually takes a month off of my mortgage plan. If I can keep paying at the beginning of the month then my last payment will be at the beginning of November 2010 making that last month a very short (2 day) month.
Anyway, just some mind games to keep me motivated. There are so many other things that try to grab my attention and my money. It is amazing how many 'deals' pop up right before I make a payment. I must stay focused on the mortgage!
