Well looking at my last post 7 years ago, I guess I quit blogging because of a death in the family. I did end up transferring the loan balance to a credit card at 0% until September 2009. This ended up being a really good move because I was laid off in February 2009. That balance transfer cut my car payment in half, and I found a job in September of 2009. At the time I was laid off I had 14k in my savings account. I managed to save another 5k while I was laid off. I was able to do this because I was also teaching music lessons on the side and put that money directly into savings. It did hurt a bit to pay off that 13k credit card bill, but I was worth it. BTW, I’m still driving that car :o)
Since I had been making us save for about 3 years and keeping our expenses low, we were able to live off of half of Mr. Thrifty Femme’s salary while I was laid off. Ah, those were the days! I should make it a goal to get back to that! These days I think we could live off of one salary alone.
Boring events include
- Saving money.
- Opening a HSA.
Big events include
- Toddler!Thrifty Femme entering the world. I will not be posting pictures even though she is very cute :o)
- Purchasing a new home in 2014.
- Potentially renting our former home 2015.
Yeah 2 and 3 don’t exactly square, but ya live and learn! That’ll be a topic for future post ;ob
