With this summer, comes lots of dust at our house, and the entire neighborhood. Unfortunately, for us, that also means a longer time till we're debt-free. Here's where about $10,000 of our cash is going to have to go:
Since it's our goal to never borrow money again, we made the decision early on to pay for the entire amount up front. $5,700 to the county and with only one estimate so far for hookup at $3,800, we're coming in close to $10,000! Also, $45 per month to the county as a utility fee as long as we live at this house. Oh, the debt we could pay down with $10G! So, we keep a positive outlook, forge ahead and are thankful for all we've paid off in 8 months, money we've saved for the sewer, and the things we've been able to do without adding any new debt since November '09.
p.s.- my 4 year old son just loves all the heavy equipment!
