A reader question, "My husband and I are thinking about paying off our mortgage early. We have a little more than $150,000 left and we have no debt.

I've heard some experts say you should pay the smaller balance first, but isn't that more costly? I'm finally in a spot where I can pay an extra $1,000 a month, what do you recommend? I also get these 0% balance transfer offers for a year. Do you think that would help me repay my debt faster? Help!"
