payday mortgage snowflake, plus office is finished!

October 12th, 2012 at 09:05 am

I sure love payday!

DH was paid today. He also got a surprise check for $55 for 20 minutes of IT work he did for a company last month. That is being snowflaked for the mortgage. Our mortgage payment is $1670. I usually pay $2000, but today we paid $2100. (I rounded up the $55 snowflake. I think we can spare the $45). I want it gone. Wish I had more to send to it. Oh well.

The bills are paid and I still have a little cushion in the checking account. That hasn't been the case lately, so it feels good.

I will be getting extra money to the tune of about $900 soon, for unexpected freelance assignments this month. That will probably all go to my IRA, which has been woefully underfunded so far this year.

In other news, my basement office is finally finished! We started in May, and I just finished the baseboards and put in the furniture last week. Finally done. We added insulation, drywall, framed out a very large wall of storage plus a storage area that can one day be converted to a half bath should we decide we need it. The total cost, most of it going to pay someone to do the framing and drywall, plus materials (drywall & doors add up!), was $3455. It looks great. It is such a dramatic change.

    Wow, that money you are throwing into the mortgage will lead to some serious (good) damage over time! Nice going. And if you can afford it, it is always nice to have some insurance of rounding UP on the payments like that. Way to go! I am sure you are seeing significant progress on that debt.
