    Bean paid knowledgeworkers to transmit:
    He would actually be able to set aside $7800 per year.

    During the first two years put the difference in payments in an HSA. By the end of the second year you'd have an idea how much on average you are spending per year, and probably have right around $10k in there. Adjust the monthly contribution to a maintenance level. Invest the difference, or make principal payments on a mortgage. Win.

...the rest would be invested as you say, in reducing a mortgage, in a Roth, etc.

But the cap for tax deferred is $5800 as of right now, IIRC. But, yes, he would be able to save $7800 total.
