Still have my head above water!

November 15th, 2011 at 01:40 am

Well, I still am out of debt. I don't spend money most days and I sock away as much money as I can. It is a little disheartening getting such a pittance in returns. Still I keep saving.

My DD is in her Junior year at college and she will get through debt free. The wife wants to get her a car for graduation but I can't see that happening.

My car is 12 years old but I am going to run it till it falls apart. We are still clipping coupons and are surprised at the savings. I cannot believe the increases in the food prices! The gas is still pretty steep here as well.

So I am keeping mu head above water and I suppose that will have to be enough for now. We have no mortgage but the taxes are just ridiculous. Our utilities have gone up a good bit as well!

Just getting by but as I said I am doing better than a great many others!

    Good to hear your update!

    I know what you're saying - our money should go much further without a mortgage and debt, but maybe after the college years (our oldest is a junior at college too, though on track to graduate a half year early, and we have three more girls to get through post-secondary schooling!) And we're thankful too for what we have and are able to do.

    Best wishes for continued plugging away!!

    I have missed you. We are still doing ok also. My dh has not had a custom home to build in a year, but we built a spec house and the first couple that looked at it, bought it. We are building another one , with our own cash. I am so happy to hear from you!

    It sounds like you are making sound decisions, and that is great that your DD is debt free in school! That leads to some insurance of a really strong financial start for her when she graduates. Good luck! Gas and groceries are getting spending in this neck of the woods, as well.
