Lawncare, here we come…

by

In keeping with the spirit of this morning’s post and really wanting to be debt free, the lawncare line item from our budget bit the dust this past Friday.  We are now on our own as far as lawn care goes…and my grass is completely overgrown!

The plan was to borrow a neighbor’s lawnmower for the first few weeks to give me time to put the money away for the equipment we need.  They were totally open to it since they don’t use it, they use the same lawn service I just quit.  However, after a year of un-use, it won’t start.

So now to plan B, as soon as I can figure out what plan B will be…but as soon as I purchase the equipment, that extra $100+ is going right to expediting my debt payoff.  (I will be paying the kids to mow the lawn, but it will come out of the already budgeted line item.)

I am SO EXCITED about the little progress that we are making that I know is going to pay off big time!
