Yes you should.

Being mortgage free is remarkably liberating and you indicate you will still have something left, so it's not like you have to live poor to do it.

What will happen is that every month that checking account will get bigger rather than smaller and every few months you will notice you have a bunch of money you should do something with.

So you will invest or buy a CD or whatever and then a few months later you'll notice the same thing and do it again. In 5 years you'll be amazed how it has added up - and it's all yours.

Been there, done that.
