First of all.....you owe $350K on a mortgage? My god man, WHY?
You have no kids. Why do you need so much house? Sell it. Buy some humble little place you can get for the change in the bottom of your wife's purse. It will be cheaper to heat and cool and you will be just as snug and happy there. Trust me. I've done it both ways. Put the rest of the money to work for you.

Buy second- (or third-) hand cars. Don't be a fashionista (whatever that is).

You are making good money. Handle it right and you actually could retire quite early.
