  1. Know what?

    When you are getting ready to put up a house for sale, your stockpile looks ALOT like CLUTTER!

    So, I'm going to only be stocking enough for a month at a time(other than TP and shampoo stuffs, those can be put in a bin in the shed when it comes times).

    Plus, it also means more to move if I have a huge stockpile. So... I'm using it up!

    Same with the freezers. We'll use it up as much as possible, no fun moving 2 full freezers. Not to mention the risk of things ...

  4. That house goal.....

    by , 07-24-2009 at 09:50 AM (Travelling on the frugal path to Freedom)
    I'm pretty excited and so is dh.

    I have adjusted the mortgage payment, so it will take effect for the payment in 2 weeks.

    With any luck, there is a steady stream of OT, as that means nearly $250/week more that could go toward our "house" fund. If we could do that consistently, that is.... approx $9000 MORE that we could use for the new house/move or reduce the mortgage by.

    So today, after I drop the girls at camp, I'll be doing a walk through with ...

    Dh was kinda going, lets stage the house and sell!

    But we have a pretty long list of things to finish in terms of projects. We also want to have more than $5000 in the bank, because if we are finishing a basement that will be ...
