House Buying Planning

So at the beginning of the year, we knew we’d be able to finish off my student loans in June, and then thought it was a good idea to replace my car, the lovely Saturn ion. It has for sure had it’s days and I wouldn’t mind an upgrade with power locks, windows and cruise control!

But as we thought about it more, and after my dad was able to make my car a bit less sketchy, we decided that saving to buy a house would be more logical in the end. My car only has 70,000 miles on it and gets great gas mileage and with the whole $4/gallon that also seemed like a good idea to keep it.

So here’s where we are at: keeping the good ol’ Staurn, and now saving for a down payment for our first house!
