Last month I did really well keeping within my budget. This month, even with recalculating my mortgage plan and loosening my budget a little, I went over by $7. And I didn't have any extra to pay down the $350 that I still owe myself. The biggest bills were electricity, gas and food. I will try again this month and maybe I can pay off that $350.
My tenant was not able to start working full time right away but did start last week and is now trying to get extra shifts to make more money. That means I agreed to wait for the next paycheck. In the mean time, I made my extra payment of $636, bringing the mortgage total to $16,590. At least it is still going down even if it is slower than previously planned. I believe I have seven more months to go since I had to add some months to make my plan more realistic.
