I have done some downsizing, de-cluttering, and organizing. We did rid ourselves of one storage shed and have cleaned out the garage. We did park the jeep in there for a while, but Andrew bought a new top for it and he is driving it more so he now parks it outside. So we can actually get around and find things that are in the garage.
We did pay off our vehicles! That was a huge thing last year that we did accomplish. Thank God for His provision.
Affordable, efficient housing is something we are still working on. We have been reluctant to buy here, because of the economy. So we are still renting the same place and spending the $1000.00 a month, plus utilities. Thank God that we didn't since we are now moving. We are going to go in March to find a place in North Carolina to live. Hopefully we can find something that will be more efficient than here. But knowing that it is only a 3-4 year job at the most, we won't buy unless the housing situation changes in this country and the economy picks up considerably. We don't want to get stuck with a house that we couldn't sell later. However, I would like to buy some land somewhere that we could have, to look toward the future, maybe build a small cabin or something that we could use as a base later in our life.
I will have to downsize and de-clutter and organize more as we face the move. Things we just can't part with but don't want to take with us will go to our storage shed behind my parents house. I made a vow that we would not take anything with us to North Carolina that we don't really love!
