OK, lots of big changes this month!
I'm now officially a renter, and I love it! Our home foreclosed this month, and now I'm saving a bunch as a renter (2 year lease) of a beautiful home. We're renting a truck to get the last of our furniture over to the new place, and have accepted a Cash for Keys deal.
We wanted to move out of state, but not without jobs. We are okay with waiting for this big move, as we have a savings plan in place.
Ideally, we will save $3,500 per month x 24 months = $84,000 added to savings in two years.
The only things that could set us back are: taxes (no more home loan interest deductions), major catastrophes with the dog, major repairs on cars (both are 8 years old/high mileage and we'd rather replace engines than buy new).
