Financial Goals: June/July Update

I've not posted a financial update in a couple of months. Since my husband's job loss in July, we haven't been able to save anything. He started his new job Monday and we're going to try to save as much as possible between now and when the girls and I join him. We don't know how long it's going to take our house to sell and we know that the possibility of carrying a mortgage and rent is out there. We also had to come to the painful conclusion that with the sell of this house, we are likely to lose all or most of our equity. It's a bitter pill to swallow but again, we're looking forward to a fresh start and a wonderful opportunity ahead. We can rebuild it over time and in the end, we believe that the benefits of living where we want to live outweigh the temporary pain. I touched on this in a recent post. Here are the goals we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year and where things stand for now.

1) Pay off my husband's car.
Completed in January. Yay!

2)Make monthly "car payments" into a car savings account each month.
None in July, partial payment in June.

3)Build our emergency fund up to six months of living expenses.
Increased from 39.4% to 42.5%.

4) Continue our normal contributions to retirement savings.
Just letting it do it's thing right now.

5) Paying extra on our mortgage.
No longer doing this since we'll be moving.

6)Save $1000 to cover all expenses for next Christmas.
This is 71% funded. With all that has happened this year, I've decided to lower the budget and stop at 75% funded.

7)Finally, by the end of the year, we plan to evaluate our savings plan and find a way to begin saving for college expenses.
We have so many other things to deal with right now.

Ultimately, these next several months are likely to be financially challenging. However, God has always provided what we need and we believe He will continue to do so. We truly believe we are following His path for our lives with this new opportunity and are willing to make the necessary sacrifices for it all to happen.

Simplifying Saturday On Sunday

There was major decluttering going on around here this week. We had a huge yard sale yesterday. I tried to be ruthless as I went through pretty much the entire house this past week. Now, I'm sure as I begin packing up the house I will continue to find things to get rid of, but we made a lot of progress this week. One thing I discovered while doing this is that I have gotten pretty good at having less stuff over the last several years. Most of what we sold at the yard sale was kid related. And once we convinced them to let go of most of their toys, I think they realized how nice it is to have less to clean up and keep tidy. We sold probably 90% or more of what we had to sell yesterday. I called a lady who works for a local non-profit agency that is hosting a fund raising yard sale soon and she swung by this afternoon and picked up the leftovers. That was nice! So it's all gone.

I'm not going to list all we got rid of but here are some of the highlights:
Little Tikes Playhouse, kitchen & sandbox
Cozy Coupe, bike & skooter
Doll house, easel, & Fisher Price playsets
Dolls, stuffed animals, random toys
air compressor, aquarium stand, crystal stemware
Lots & lots of stuff we just didn't need.

It was so nice to see it all go and know we're not going to have to move it!

I still have clutter to get rid of. Most of it is paper related. For some reason, I'm never sure which ones to toss and which ones to keep. I'm getting better but there are still plenty of bills, EOBs, bank statements, etc. to go through. I've got to figure out better way of dealing with them.

We had the realtor over yesterday to get things in order to get the house ready go on the market. I'll be spending the next week getting rid of as much of "us" as possible which includes simplifying some of the decor and getting rid of more stuff. As I begin packing things up and preparing for our move, I am going to try to take a good, objective look at each item before I pack it. I really want to be able to just unpack the things we need and the things we love in our new home.
