Trying to Slow the Money Leaks

September 14th, 2020 at 11:36 pm

Still robbing Peter to Paul since the purchase of our townhome. We closed on 9/4. Ten days later here is the other spending I've been doing:

$981 for removal of wall separating small formal living room with family room of townhome
$1,500 installation of carpeting in the family room of home we are selling
$2,500 painting of main living areas and kitchen cabinets of townhome
$200 deep cleaning for home we are selling

With half of the children off at college, our expenses are down significantly. I'm left with a picky eater who is very low maintenance and a vegan who mostly buys her own specialty foods (outside of fruits/veggies/vegan findings at Aldi).

Also trying to cash flow a trip to California next month and a side-excursion to Salt Lake City on our way home. Airfare is cheap, we have a place to stay, expenses should be low. I have a $100 gift card from the realtor who brokered the sale of the townhome, $35 from a forgotten check, and $52 from rolled change. RT airfare from Chicago to LAX is now at $85. Crazy.

Relishing the last days of Budget Lockdown's Last Stand.

    Hopefully the money you are spending on the house you are selling will pay off with a quick sale!
