We’ve decided to stop saving for a second vehicle. We have $4k in that fund and we may use it for a vehicle or we may put it toward a house. Dunno. It’s just sittin’ pretty right now.
We’re moving on to building up our house down payment fund. It does seem like we’ll rent for at least a little while once we make the big move, but we’ve gotta start saving sometime!
Right now, our fund is at a sad little 4 percent. Not four percent down — four percent of my 10 percent goal. So…yeah that isn’t very much. I’m not even going to calculate how much that is of a total house purchase because that would be depressing.
But not to worry! I have several auctions going on eBay for things we’ve had just collecting dust. I sold 16 items at HalfPriceBooks today (they didn’t have much value on Amazon and I didn’t want to get PaperBackSwap credit), and I was hoping they’d offer $10. Well, they gave me $16.75. Thank you!
Getting rid of things helps us by bringing in a little more money for the house fund AND it’s that much less stuff we have to move later on.
I have my trusty little progress bar up and ready to grow. Go, thing, go!
