Monthly Summary: June 2008

The June summary comes a few days early because my wife and I are headed away for vacation and will be without internet access for a little while.

June's payment was the 26th of 180 scheduled payments on our 15-year mortgage. It was also our sixth payment since we established our five-year goal.

We started this month with an outstanding balance of $172,436.38. We made a $5,000 (!!!) extra payment to principal, bringing our total principal payment to $5,859.29 in June. Our new balance stands at $166,577.09.

We're now $17,998 ahead of our scheduled mortgage balance. We could stop making extra payments now and still pay down the debt twenty-one months early.

This month's saved interest amount was $64.67. To date, we have saved $197.90 in interest payments.

Our average required monthly principal payment to meet our five-year goal dropped to $3,084.76.

My wife got an advance payment for some summer work she's doing, which helped us make a larger-than-normal extra principal contribution in June. Our July and August payments may be smaller than past months as a result. However, if we can focus on saving (especially during vacation), we may be able to end the summer months in great shape to meet our first-year goal.
