Laura, this calculator was very helpful. This is what we figured out:

If we pay an extra $100 monthly - it takes about 9 years off the loan
If we pay an extra $200 monthly - 13 years
$300 - 16 years
If we double our mortgage payment - we will be mortgage free in 5 years.

A double mortgage payment is a pipe dream for us, but starting last month we are directing all our snowball power to our mortgage. :

Happy wife to DH superhero.gifand mama to DS signcirc1.gif11/05 and DD energy.gif8/07.
