I can breath. We earned our first paycheck since July 1st. I'm transfering the $748 for savings (our monthly savings)and the $2,484. for the mortgage payment, which include the $1K towards the extra principal payment. I'm taking the coins to the bank tomorrow to see if I can send an additional $50 to the principal. Next pay period I'll take care of the rest of the bills. I really, really want to continue paying towards the principal so that maybe just maybe, my hubby can retire at 60. I'll have to work quite a few years more than he does since I was a stay at home mom for many years. He's almost 52 and I just turned 41 years old. I also increase my 403B deductions to $200 per pay period from $150.

I hope you all have a frugal week and a wonderful weekend.

    That's a fine additional mortgage payment. September always has seemed more like the New Year than January. It's a time of new beginnings and optimism.

    My parents were teachers. I remember being broke by the end of summer and waiting for that first paycheck!
