I went to balance my checkbook this morning, and found something rather odd.

The bank statement erred on my monthly mortgage payment. Every month I pay $####.64 ... but on this statement, it says I paid $####.69.

I guess my 4s look a bit like 9s, but the mortgage company lists me as paying the usual amount.

I know it's only 5 cents, but it's the principle that counts, right?

If that's true, then you're ahead, since you're paying it down a bit faster.

Oh boy!!! If you've made this mistake for the last 5 years(60 months), you have made an extra payment, to be applied to principle, of Three Dollars!!!

edit: Principal??? damned auto-fill.

Yeah, but paying off that three dollars early saved him about $1000 in interest payments.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Just for the point of easy bookkeeping, and remembering how much we owe.....

We round off all our payments to the next highest full dollar.

So if we have a bill for $204.86, we pay $205 on purpose.


After eight years of overpaying our electric bill we had enough credit from overpaying that we could automatically pay the bill.

Not sure that works with a mortgage though. whistle
