Mortgage Now Under $8000

December 1st, 2013 at 01:24 pm

Whoops!I forgot to add this to the payday report, but I also made the mortgage payment and that officially puts us under $8K owed on the house.

I didn't make a very big payment this time, just $400, which is $24 and some change above the actual payment. Just with Christmas coming up and 4 weeks of no pay following the last payday on the 27th of December, I am saving as much as I can. I will make up for it when I know where things stand for sure.

DH said that he might have the option to go back to work early. If he does that would be great. Even though we prepare for this unpaid time off every year, it still is quite a stretch of our dollars.

19 days and counting until the yearly bonuses are sent out. They usually arrive pretty quickly after they are mailed out. I am crossing my fingers for 10%, but expecting 5% or less.

My SIL has some friends interested in buying some rabbit meat from us. DH and I have set the price at $25 a rabbit. It costs $18 to raise one up to slaughtering age with feed costs (no GMO, no soy, no corn feed), hay, and organic produce during the fall and winter. And we want to see some profit for our time and effort. I see chickens go for $30 with that sort of feeding so hopefully she won't balk at that.

    You might try more than $25 if you think you can get it!
    Congratulations on the lower mortgage balance, too.

    You are really in the mortgage HOME stretch!....Had no idea it costs so much to feed rabbits. In my little orchard the wild ones like to eat the pencil thin branch tips and root suckers which are less than one season old. Do yours get to eat anything softly woody like that? Oh, they really like the blackberry branches, too.

    Gah. Jealous on the mortgage! Hopefully I'll be able to say something similar within the next three years.

    Joan, they get apple twigs to eat. It costs that much to feed 50 rabbits, but then that's money we don't have to spend in the grocery budget since the rabbits go to feed us.

    I am so glad to hear to you at 8K - That's totally wonderful.
