We Decided

April 16th, 2011 at 08:08 am

DH and I talked yesterday about the truck money. We are going to stick to our plan and use it towards the purchase of the truck. The savings is only about half of the purchase price. The remainder will be taken out as a loan. We plan to keep our current van and this truck until our girls graduate college, which is at least 10 years away.

In the next year, we should be able to live on our current income even while maintaining two households. And we have our emergency fund we can dip into if needed. And hopefully it won't be needed. Once we move, we should be able to make new goals and progress towards those.

It feels good that we decided. I'm happy that we are sticking with our original plan. Smile

    I'm sorry....maybe I missed this somewhere along the way....but why do you have to pay for 2 households? That has to be expensive.

    @Rachel: My husband is moving for school and then to his next duty station. We are not moving our girls twice in less than 12 months, so in the meantime we will be paying for two households. We have middle school and high school age children.
