Debt Update - 5/25/18 Rental Repairs Update

May 25th, 2018 at 12:42 pm

Well we got the new carpet ordered for Rental #2, the new fridge was delivered last week, and we got a signed lease for a new renter today! They won't be moving in until July 1st, but that is ok cause we need to get the new carpet in and do some yard work and a few minor repairs so it's good to have a few weeks to get everything done right before they move in.

We also (hopefully) found another renter for the 4 unit we manage for my parents. We don't have a lease yet, so not saying for sure, but looks promising.

Debt Update - 5/11/18

May 11th, 2018 at 02:46 pm

We are scrambling like crazy with our rentals and the rentals we are the property managers at. Spring brings so many repairs and maintenance tasks and then add that to our renter moving out, and 2 units open in the property we manage and hubby and I are both running around in circles all the time. We have a few more repairs than we originally thought at Rental #2. MO ordered a new fridge for it yesterday, and we will be replacing the carpeting in 3 rooms as well. We also ordered new hot tub covers for the rental (renter will be losing out of their deposit for that since they destroyed it) and one for our hot tub. So very happy we had a good savings cushion going.....after all the repairs I'm sure there will be a good chunk gone.

We cashed out our Dietbet Winnings and that was a great boost to savings!

Our renter in Rental #2 is moving out at the end of the month so we will get that on the market tomorrow and hopefully don't have any trouble filling the vacancy. Since we just did updates on that one last summer it should be pretty much move in ready, other then that we need to buy a new fridge for it.

$20K Update - Back from Laughlin!

April 28th, 2018 at 01:05 pm

Laughlin trip went great!! Weather was beautiful, in the 90s+ everyday. So nice to soak up some sunshine. We didn't come home ahead this trip, but we had a lot of fun with friends, and we were quite a bit ahead for the year already from other mini trips, so didn't have to take any out of savings for the whole trip!

I have another minor surgery in two weeks so we will be out of town then, but other then that trying to spend more time at home getting spring cleaning and yard work done.

We want to pay off the Mom Loan and we have enough in savings to pay it all off right now, but we are going to wait just a little bit longer to buff up savings even more. We are going to be building a patio and adding egress windows on one of our rentals, and buying a new fridge for the other rental, plus we have emptied our HSA for medical bills so are now paying them OOP. So we want to make sure we have enough to payoff the Mom Loan and still have $10K left in savings for any emergencies or rental expenses that come up. Hopefully just a few more months and we will be there.

$20K Update and an ER visit for MO

March 19th, 2018 at 08:04 am

We seem to be having quite a bit of bad luck on the medical side. MO was at work taking down a display and a bar hit him in the back of the head so he had to go to the ER and get 5 staples in his head. The only good thing is at least it was a work accident so we won't have any medical bills from the accident. MO is doing good and gets his staples out later this week, and hopefully next time will be a little more careful..lol!

Debt Update - 3/16/18

March 19th, 2018 at 07:08 am

Yes we are finally under $500K!!!

Normally MO would pay on his mortgage on this paycheck, but it is a 3 paycheck month so he paid some other bills associated with our rental being open for a month instead, and he will pay his mortgage with the last check of the month. I did some miscalculations as I was writing up my update while watching March Madness and apparently not paying attention so I thought we weren't going to get under $500K, so I paid an extra $250 on my mortgage. After I paid it I realized I hadn't updated the payment for our mortgage, and that we were already under $500K with out that extra payment....oops! Oh well so we paid $250 extra that we didn't need to right now, but it all has to get paid eventually!!

$20K Update - HSA is officially empty

March 15th, 2018 at 08:09 am

Things are going good here. We got away for the weekend and went to the casino with some friends and my Aunt Lori (shout out!), MO did great again, he has been so lucky this year! We will save the winners from there for our Laughlin trip in April.

I have a ton of medical apts, so those are keeping me busy as most of them are 5 hrs away from home, so I am putting in some major miles. We had to prepay a $4000 medical bill and also pay $4000 in Rx bills, so our HSA is now completely empty. I am sad to see that savings gone, but am happy I had saved it up for so many years so we had it to use now and didn't have to pay that $8000 OOP. Any new bills we will have to pay OOP, so we will keep trying to bulk up savings as best we can to stay on top of those bills.
