Mortgage Chips To Date

July 4th, 2014 at 04:56 pm

My mortgage payment has posted, bringing the balance down to $172,641.29.

Chips this month:
part-time job $160.00
budgeted extra $54.36
WF Visa $25.00
Bill Me Later refund $8.67
CC rewards $6.82
found on sidewalk $1.00

Total chips this month: $255.85

Chips to date: $1,399.64

Interest savings this month: $4.70

Interest savings to date: $26.04

Eventually, the interest savings on the chips I have already made will compound to $3,084.56, provided I own this house until the mortgage is paid in full.

So, not a bad collection of chips in approximately 1 year of chipping. I have eliminated 5 payments from the end, and reduced a 6th.

As I said yesterday, I am going to stop chipping in favor of accumulating cash. I will still track my credit card rewards as they are received. But now, they will go into my car fund instead of towards my mortgage.
