Goal #2 Complete!

April 15th, 2020 at 02:40 pm

The stimulus check hit my account this morning! Allowing me pay off the full balance of my construction loan! 6 months before the 0% interest expires!

The small medical loan is up next. Hopefully by June it will be gone and we will be down to just one debt.

In other news I bought a new dryer. Ours was given to us well used when we got married 8 years ago. It has been on it's last leg for two+ months now. The bearing is going out and it makes a horrible screeching, so loud you have to cover your ears while in the same room. Every time I use it I cross my fingers that it will work. Also recently clothes keep getting stuck in it and tearing them up. With a new baby and our laundry needs going up I figured it was time.

Our old washer went out a year or two ago and I purchased a new one. So I have been watching the matching dryer price for about a month. It has been on sale this week for 40% off and last night was the last day. With our stimulus coming in, I went ahead and purchased it. They said it could take up to a couple weeks to arrive with free delivery. I didn't want to chance mine going out and being stuck without for weeks. That uses up the last $500 of the stimulus, which I was hoping to save for animal money but oh well.

We are not getting the $500 for our 2020 baby since they are basing it off our 2019 taxes. From what I understand that $500 will probably get added our tax return next year.

I also ordered a new crockpot. Mine has been broken for a while and I was given money at Christmas to purchase a new one but I couldn't decide which one. I've been holding onto the money this whole time because I am sooo picky. I always read reviews and check out all options before purchasing pretty much anything. Well I finally bit the bullet and picked one out. Super excited to use my new appliances soon.
