The announcement

Ok, so I've been whining about my finances. They are, to put it bluntly, a mess. I know a large part of the plan must include changing habits on the part of yours truly. I get that. But, I also know that if all things remain the same, I am not going to get ahead of the debt in my lifetime. That calls for a big move.

So, I am going to sell my house. My friend KS is a real estate agent. She is going to look into comps and see if I'm right about the price tag I'd like to put on the house. If I can get what I want, then I will be able to either rent for a couple of years or find another townhome to live in for a while before I upgrade again. That will allow me to totally pay off my debt, and have money put aside for emergencies/new car when it is time. I can also start saving again for my next upgrade.

I love this house, but I hate how stressed I always am about my finances. So, once again, this blog will become the merry tale of my fixing up a house and moving on. . . I'll keep you posted.

  1. Exciting! Way to take charge of the situation. You are about to embark on a wonderful adventure!

    Whatcha gonna do with the empty bathroom? I actually think it would be pretty cool to buy a house where you could do whatever you wanted to a blank slate like that.
