reaching for our goals... building our forever home
Angie and Cris
This past week, we met with a mortgage specialist at Summit Credit Union, based on the advice from our Summit financial coach.  Our goal is to start the building process in the Spring of 2020.  That really isn’t that far away, and where do we start? We have never built a home before, so we need to know a lot.  Being that Cris has been a carpenter the better part of 20 years, he wants to build it himself.  Do we find a flexible general contractor, or do we go through the paperwork of Cris becoming his own general contractor?

bathrooms on a budget
Sara
Hello Week 23 of Project Money!  This week, the motor died on my self-cleaning litter box, my cat destroyed another roll of toilet paper when I inadvertently left the bathroom door open, and my bathroom fan breathed its last sigh.  As children, we may have been scolded for our potty talk, but this week’s blog gives voice to a topic not frequently talked about in polite conversation:  our washrooms.  When we think about cleaning our houses, particularly our bathrooms, none of us want to spend a lot of time or money doing so.

Jaclyn and Kiara

In case you didn’t get to see our last blog or know already, Kiara’s credit score jumped over 100 points and Jaclyn’s increased 70 points! Isn’t that just crazy?! It truly is crazy but so awesome! Nevertheless, with rejuvenated credit comes more offers than your mind or shredder can handle!

DIY Cat treats
Sara
Hello Week 22 of Project Money!  Fall is in the air and it feels we are in the home stretch of Project Money.  This week I took an idea from my Project Money friends and decided to make some homemade cat treats. My cat Jazz is a bit on the finicky side so I was pleasantly surprised when her olfactory senses kicked in as we opened the can of salmon. Isaac helped me with the ingredients, the preparation, and the baking, and Miles helped with the taste test, but more on that later.
