We’re Now Saving Over $7,000 A Year By Becoming A One Car Family Plus Monthly Life Update

May Goals Update 1 7Hello everyone! Time for another life, goals, and food budget update. The month isn’t over yet, but I’m typing this on the 28th and I think it’s close enough.

May was another great month for us. It was my birthday month and I did a good amount of traveling. I went to Utah, Nevada, California, St. Louis, and Gulf Shores in May and had a great time on these trips.

Colorado is still treating us very well. We are enjoying all of the outdoor activities that Colorado offers and everything else around here.

The only negative I can think of from this past month is that our house is still for sale. Let’s hope June is the month for us!

March Goals Update, New April Goals And A Food Budget Update

March Goals Update, New April Goals And Food Budget Update 1Hello everyone! Time for another life, goals, and food budget update.

March was another great month.

We are still enjoying our new home in Colorado. The weather has been perfect here, with nearly every single day being in the mid-70s. It’s also been sunny every day and I think it’s only rained once or twice. It’s been wonderful!

Our house is still for sale in Missouri.

It hasn’t sold yet, but we did decide to drop the price a little. The house is for sale for less than what we originally bought it for, which stinks but we’re hoping it sells quickly. We have had several showings in the past month so I’m hoping something eventually happens! [Read more…]

February Goals Update, New March Goals And Colorado Pictures

Move To Fruita Colorado Pictures  2Hello everyone! Time for another life and goals update.

February was another great and crazy month for us. We moved to Colorado, we put our house on the market, and it was a great month for business.

Our new home looks great and it’s already starting to feel like a real home. It is a great feeling knowing that pretty much everything is done and now we can just start enjoying our new state.

Also, as I said earlier, our old house is on the market. We decided to list it for now and see what happens. If it doesn’t sell, then we plan renting it out until our neighborhood rebounds from the tanking that it has experienced lately.

We’ve had two showings so far, so I’m not sure what to think. I realize that it’s only been a little over a week so I guess we will see. Please wish us luck!

January Goals Update and New February Goals – We FINALLY Eliminated Cable

January Goals Update and New February Goals - We FINALLY Eliminated CableHello everyone! Time for another life update post.

January was another good month for us. We worked out a good amount, we ate fairly well, and it was a month full of exciting planning for our future.

Last month, we decided to put our house on the market and find a new place to live. We definitely sped up our moving timeline a decent amount, but I’m excited for all of the changes we are about to experience.

During the last week of January, we traveled to Colorado in hopes of finding a rental house. We spent a week there and found one that we really liked. I talked about that here.

 

We got rid of cable!

Yes, you read that right. We finally cut cable out of our lives. We are about to move, so it made the decision a little easier. I figured we wouldn’t have time to watch TV the next few weeks, so I thought this would be the perfect time to cut it out because we probably wouldn’t miss it at this time anyways.

The cable company did beg for us to stay. They offered us probably 5 or 6 different options, even putting our cable on hold for free until we decided we wanted it back again. While that was a tempting option, I knew that it just wouldn’t be worth it.

We spend way too much time watching TV, so it really wasn’t just about the money that we were wasting. In just the past week that we haven’t had cable, we have done much more than we would have ever been able to do if we would have kept it turned on.

I think this is a decision we will never regret.
