Weekly update

March 5th, 2015 at 05:58 am

No work today for me, we are basically buried in snow and still going. I am so done with winter!

I skipped my bi-weekly grocery shopping this past weekend and instead used my Costco reward check to purchase some much needed meat. I purposely did this so that I can stock up the fridge with items before I leave to the Caribbean (to visit my mother) the last week of March. I planned to do double batches of dinners to leave my guys in the freezer.

We are ordering the granite for a kitchen countertop. The kitchen looks 100% better already with the new appliances/cabinet hardware and the granite and back splash will complete the kitchen rehab. As you may remembered, we were planning on doing a complete gut job on the kitchen but changed our minds when we were quoted over $50K to do the work. We chose to payoff the house and be mortgage free. When everything is completed, the rehab will cost us a little over $10K. We are hoping to save enough money to begin work on the upstairs bathroom for the summer of 2016 and subsequently do the same with the downstairs bathroom in the summer of 2017. One thing at a time and paying for the jobs in cash. NO MORE DEBT FOR US, if we can help it.

    WOOHOO for debt free.
    once you are free I don't think anything is worth giving up the feeling of having no debt.
    Good job on the kitchen costs.
