Another Resolution - Outta the Park!

April 20th, 2010 at 08:19 pm

Woweeee! Another resolution to cross off my list! I made the last payment on our only store credit card, and it finally cleared the bank! That makes it official. We are finally out of debt. Time to decide where to go from here. Actually, I'm sure that it won't be a tough decision, at least for a while. There are some maintainence issues on the house and barn, that had to wait until we got other things under control. I was so sure 4 years ago, when we were mortgage free, that money could go right into "fixing up" but, as you all know, life is what happens when you're making other plans. Actually, the home improvement issue was another thing on my New Years Resolution list, I'm killing two birds with one stone! I think? It sure feels nice to be making some positive progress! UhOh, now I'm a little torn. Posted on the wall right in front of me is a printout of Dave Ramseys "baby steps". I know we don't have nearly 3 to 6 months of expenses saved. Dang. But if I wait that long to start some of these fix-its, the season will have passed. You can't do some kinds of outdoor work in Winter in Michigan. How much more time will some of these things be able to wait? Oh man, now I'm not in such a good mood. I think too much. Groan.

    Oh come on, you're still debt-free! That's awesome!!!

    How about 1-2 months of expenses? If you could get that much saved, I think it would be safe to do some improvements. Maintenance is important because it can save money (on other damage and emergency repairs) in the long run.

    Yay debt free!! Congrats. I know what you mean about getting work done in summer. I try to space my home repairs out, but some stuff just needs to be done sooner rather than later.
