Busy day

August 25th, 2016 at 02:49 pm

We closed on our second home today. I like that this house basically pays for itself, but I'm already playing with amortization tables to figure out extra principal scenarios to pay it off as soon as possible. I'm no stranger to that! First payment on this home is October 1st.

As it stand, the checking account still has a buffer of $700 and hubby's payday is Monday. I will sweep that money three ways (home principal, Roth and savings). I won't get paid again until September 15th.

My tomatoes are in full throttle and I also got zucchini and squash from a friend. She also gave me a loaf of her zucchini bread. I am so very grateful for her kindness.

I'd been buying gifts every pay period for people on my Christmas list. There are not too many people on my list but I'd much rather enjoy the season than be stock shopping. I bought two gifts today.

I guess this it today!

    Congrats on the second home! I may need to start contemplating gifts for Christmas. We narrowed it done pretty far last year, hoping for the same this year, too.

    That is so awesome! We have a flat in England that's paying for its own mortgage with renters. Nice to know it's there appreciating in value and giving us a little bit of extra money each month! I'd love to get a place here in Minneapolis and rent it to my friend, but I haven't seen any affordable places nearby (and I know down payment requirement is higher on a non-primary residence.)
