I will say that we are saving money, but we are behind with the student loan payments. I’ll explain why below (and share our numbers).
Overwhelmed with Selling the House (and More)
The big word for the summer has been BUSY.
We’ve listed our house, but haven’t sold it yet. We’re still keeping the house nice and tidy for potential buyers, but it’s harder than I imagined.
Having showings during the day while trying to work and watch two kids is draining. I’ve had to work on weekends to keep things on schedule.
To help things along, we’re taking on home improvement projects to make the place more appealing. The struggle is getting them done – not only is our time limited, but showings are through the day.
I’ve had a last minute request to see the place while we were updating the bathroom. They came early and even though they were told what was going on, the feedback was about the painter’s tape. (Seriously?!)
As far as work, I wrapped up the first season of the Couple Money Podcast. Loved it – thank you for all of your support.
