Moving house finally

April 14th, 2015 at 05:35 am

We live in a tiny 600 sq. ft. 2 bed apartment. We rent it off some friends we made the last time we were in the country. It was only ever temporary while we found something more in line with what we wanted.
But we got so caught up in work and life that we have been here almost 6 months. Kids have gone stir crazy in such a tiny place.

Well finally last week we saw a fantastic 4 bedroom 3 bathroom 3 level town house. And the price was perfect at $1300.00 for the month.
We won't know what to do with the space lol. Additionally it has a huge private garage under the house for my big truck. Will be nice to get it off the street and out of the rain.
While paying $835.00 a month including everything allowed us to really bank some money this new place will only raise our total monthly expenses from $2200.00 to $2850.00.

Additionally as we get closer to the 28th we have realised our months' income has climbed from $51 790.00 to $53 417.38. So even though I am going to be paying double rent next month to allow us to move without rushing we will still get to bank into savings $49 732.38 bringing the total to $173 372.27.This includes the $77.22 interest we will get for the month.
Next months (may 28th ) earnings are roughly around $20 000.00 but this again could rise with some late invoices coming in. will know more on the 16th. Looking to destroy our goal for savings for the year.

Good bye devil screaming neighbour!

Have lots to do in the coming months. Have to get the whole tribe to the dentist at some point and I'm pretty sure my out of country driver's license is no longer good so I need to apply for the relevant state one.
Plus my son wants to start Karate or boxing which will be great for him and I will put little miss into ballet, she loves twirling like a princess.
I would love to take the family on a big road trip to Vancouver Island for a couple weeks during the summer but we have such a brutal work schedule until December I'm not sure it's on the cards this year. We might have to be all business until December and look at planning for big trip for next summer.

Good bye evil laundry rule breaking neighbour!
