A Big Move

An unexpected move is on the horizon. My husband and I have been given the opportunity to move into a place super cheap. It is a property that his family owns and don't want to sell until the market picks up. Instead of sitting empty we're going to move in. It will be a little more space than we have and a lot cheaper than what we pay now. This will give us the perfect opportunity to save more money for purchasing a place down the road.

Saving money is on at the top of my list of favorite things and feels especially good as this time of year is VERY expensive with medical bills, our dog's yearly vet bills, new tires for the car (ouch) and an upcoming drive to Minnesota. To say that this will help us out, would be a huge understatement.

We don't have a set move date but it will slowly start happening right away. There is lots to do to prepare and it will all have to be done slowly. The place needs to be painted, the carpets need to be cleaned and then we can start slowly moving things over. The next couple of months promise to be quite busy. This will be a good test of some of my new pacing skills. Let's see if I can keep myself from overdoing it.


  1. Yay! That's awesome!

    I feel ya on the new tires! I had to get 4 the week of Christmas! That hurt!!!

  2. That's super news; great for your future and even for the present. Yes, try to pace your self as best you can.

  3. That's so cool! Good luck, and do try to pace yourself.

  4. That sounds great! Do pace yourself and take care of yourself.
