I haven't updated in a while but the den payoff is going good!
We paid off the att debt and paid some on family. We switched insurance on our house, which lowered escrow, which lowered our payment to about $475 a month. We saved the thousand but spent it on an emergency so we're started from square on with our savings now. We also managed to pay enough additional mortgage that instead of being paid off on 5/42 our mortgage loan will be paid off 4/42!
Hopefully we keep it up!
ETA: I forgot I updated..he got another good job a month later but it was temporary and now he starts a new, more permanent job Monday. He's really excited about it! And it's a salary job, which has its downsides, but it's good for budgeting!
My husband loves his job and I started mine..we have plenty of money to go toward debt but stuff keeps coming up do it hasn't been as fast as we want it to..but he saved the thousand and paid the whole last year's off the house(up to 12/41), and then we had to use the thousand on a few emergencies that came up..so now were back to saving that. Then our bathtub started leaking so now we have to fix that and our has dryer went out and we got a eclectic dryer given to us..but to use the electric dryer we need a higher amp plug..so we have to pay for that...my job is seasonal so is starting to look like I won't be able to pay off much more debt before I term out..which case I will get a bonus and unemployment so maybe that can go toward debt :-)
Home ownership can be a nuisance that way, but at least you guys have been saving and not going more into debt.
I know "/ hopefully this savings stool last us a while, we've decided to ttc #2 and I won't be working until new baby is older. Unemployment will only go so cat haha
I don't remember if I've mentioned my inheritance, but it's been tied up on court for 4 years. I don't know how much I'll be getting but it's in the ten thousands, well today was the last day for our opposition to file an appeal and she hasn't (to my knowledge) so hopefully within the next six months I get that and money won't be a big issue
Another update! Baby #2 is here and he's sooooo perfect.
We melded a new car and got it in January, shortly after I got my inheritance and paid it off. We are back to only owing on the house and so far that will be paid off 12/41. My husband got a good job but we're still catching up.
I'm going back to school in the fall and an hoping I can go on grants scholarships and cash and won't have to go into debt. I've decided I want to be an Occupational Therapist which will be done before I know it with the credits I already have (at least hopefully lol)
