Today, for the first time in almost 2.5 years, I made a payment on my mortgage that had an extra $141 towards principal! I have been wishing and hoping that I could put extra payments on my mortgage for some time now. It meant more to me than paying off my last student loan. I have not felt such elation in a long time. I know it's not much and that I still have a long way to go, but it felt good.
