I had a post all typed and ready to go on Friday. Blogger ate it. I'm sure it was Blogger's fault and that I had nothing to do with it. Now it's been a week since I last blogged. Each night as I turned out the light for bedtime, I felt like my day wasn't quite complete since I hadn't blogged!
We got the realtor results back and they were what we thought they would be. Taking ALL things into consideration, including the wonderful advice that y'all gave in the comments, we have decided. . .
NOT to sell. For now, anyway.
Without enough money to purchase a piece of property and build a small home on it debt-free, selling and moving would put us pretty much where we are right now. Except that we would START paying all the interest off the top again.
So now we're on to Phase 2 of our Get-Out-of-Debt plan:
- Create and follow a stringent budget (already in place and working well)
- Sell anything that isn't related to us and we no longer need (Son is safe.)
- Throw any and all extra money at the consumer debt as fast as we can
We haven't given up on our dream of 100% debt-free living, but we need to get in a better position for that to happen.
And so ends the saga.
Next up: Anyone want to share their budget? I love reading other people's budgets. Is that just me?
