Not a lot new

June 18th, 2023 at 09:52 pm

I haven't blogged for a bit because I really haven't had much to write about. Life is going along and I'm not complaining, but my days seem full and busy. 

I am continuing to work on ways to decrease the church mortgage. I'm not taking credit for all of this, but we have reduced the mortgage by $50,000 in 6 months. Granted, this isn't sustainable due to some large gifts, but it is pretty amazing and we have knocked off quite a few months since this was applied just to the principal. There have been other cost cutting ways applied to also just help with the regular budget. It's nice that so many of the people of our congregation want to help by saving money. 

I have donated a few things to the local thift shop. Someone wasn't happy when I said I didn't want to go every week to shop; it's easier to resist temptation when you aren't shopping. I wasn't going crazy and buying stuff every time, but honestly, I don't need to be tempted. I think I'm getting to that stage in my life where I realize less is truly more.

Just thought I'd check in. Hope everyone is having a grand day.

    Good to hear from you! That is really fantastic progress on paying down the church mortgage. Every little bit of savings helps, and it really does add up. I have personally found that the peace of mind that comes along with a paid off home is immeasurable.

    I think you deserve credit for tge mortgage drop because it was your example that put this in front of others!

    I am with you on the accumulation of stuff. I buy almost nothing that isn’t consumable any more!

    It's good to hear from you! I was just thinking a few days ago that it'd been a while since you checked in.

    $50k in 6 months is a lot.
