|The reason we are saving|Pay all of our August billsDONE
- Save as much money as we possibly can save toward moving (we have to hire a moving company for a few hours to help with some very large and very heavy pieces of furniture), a refrigerator (our new house does not come with a refrigerator), ceiling fans, mini-blinds, and Tyler new bedroom furniture.
If you remember one of the goals that we had worked so hard for was saving $1950 toward our closing costs and we accomplished this goal in July (thank you Jesus). Well, when the mortgage company re-ran our credit and finalized the loan paperwork for final approval we ended up needing to dip into that money to pay down our only credit card and get the balance below a hundred dollars. So we had to take around 300 dollars from the money we had saved and pay that card down. We still had all of our closing money we just had less to put toward the items that we were going to need once we closed. But we were thankful that we had the money in our house fund and that we were able to do it with no problem.
Now for the amazing news! When the final numbers came back we owed NOTHING at closing! As a matter of fact (if nothing changes) we will actually leave closing with a check for about 150 dollars! HOW AWESOME IS OUR GOD!
So all the money that we had saved toward closing is now going to be able to be used for things for the house! So here are our new goals for September
- Pay all of our September bills
- Save as much money as we can to put toward our new home. Refrigerator, mini-blinds, ceiling fans, Tyler's bedroom furniture and movers.
We are so thankful that God has given us the ability to save this money and that he has stepped in in such mighty ways to reassure us that his hand is in the building of this home.
I just realized that the next Financial Goal update that I post should be after we have moved into the house! Oh my goodness that is exciting!
