Mortgage update:

As of June 22nd we've paid $16,914.15 towards the mortgage principal. /

July and August mortgage were paid utilizing my June paychecks. I'm officially out of work until September 1st. September's mortgage will be paid as soon as hubby's paycheck clears next week. I want to have a carefree summer and knowing that the mortgage is paid for the summer provides a sence of tranquility for me.

New car update:

We've narrowed our search to two cars. Toyota Corolla Sport or a Honda Fit Sport. I happen to like the Toyota much more than the Honda Fit, although both of them our great cars. My DS#2 has a 2008 Honda Fit and I can tell you that it's a nice little car, but for me the Toyota pleases me more. Toyota is running a 0% financing on their Corolla and Camry and if we decide to get the Toyota we will finance it at 0%.


Today, I will be ordering a wireless printer (we desperately need) and a Garmin Nuvi GPS. I want to take more day trips this summer, so I decided to buy the GPS. Cost: NOTHING. I'm using my Amazon rewards to purchase these two items and a book I want to read this summer.

Well this is it for my update. I hope you all have a great end of the work week and a wonderful weekend.

    Wow, nice that your Amazon deal leads to such awesome purchases with the insurance of nothing out of pocket! Impressive work... I'm jealous. I need to get a new printer, too, but it's definitely going to cost me. Argh.

    I love using my Amazon gift cards! I was able to get a new computer screen for free, and pay for part of a new computer! Big Grin
    Enjoy your GPS!
