I put $30,000 toward the principle today on our mortgage. Y and I had talked about putting 43K on it but we decided that might be cutting it too close on our end. We compromised and I made the payment today online. That puts our mortgage at about 56K before our payment for October 1. Now I just need to keep chipping away at it. 56K isn't such a large amount. I want it gone sooner than later while keeping our savings at a constant. I personally think that I'm much better in debt paydown mode than saving mode.
I really hope that I don't regret this decision to put so much toward our mortgage instead of keeping it liquid.
