My budget is completely blown for this month and probably next as well. Why you ask?
The house needs to be painted, and power washed, landscaping cleaned up and prettied up, two inside doors need replacing, and the list goes on and on and on. I mean, like 20 things that need to be done around here that I cannot do. While my dad said he would take care of getting the house ready to sale once I moved out, I don’t feel right leaving him with that. It’s our mess (it’s not really a mess, just day to day living and things you do to sell a house) and we should be responsible for it. So I’m doing my best to get most of it done before we move out. So when he comes into town a week later…voila, it’s ready to go on the market. At least that’s my goal!
So while I hoped to put up a new monthly budget either this week or next, well, it’s going to have to wait at least a couple more weeks so I can get this housework done. All but minimum debt payments are on hold until we move out.
Now the bright side…my “deal” for moving into the apartment is that I get October free and 1/2 of November free. So hopefully, I will catch right back up with my momentum, not to mention all the monies from the sale of stuff and we will be on track or maybe *crossing fingers a little ahead.
Look for a new proposed budget closer to move date. I did get the “average” utility costs from the apartment management so I can plan that way.
