We are still screaming that we are debt free March 22 at 3 PM CST

We are just doing it via phone. I am just super busy lately and have no time for a trip. We ordered a big metal building in cash. It is going to be part man cave for my husband and half homeschool room. I am so excited ! It has been my dream for awhile. I am feeling WAYYY better health wise too. I am trying to cram all the stuff we didn’t get done when I was sick into the next few weeks before school starts. Our house remodel is almost done too ! I have been out enjoying debt free life and have missed alot on the blog. I am sorry everyone. I am hoping to get caught up soon. 🙂

My shoe collection has slowly been moved to the basement

It was in my shoe room, I mean spare bedroom, but I have had to move them to make room for bedroom/nursery for my daughter. The thought has crossed my mind to buy a bigger house eeek… but I’m praying this move my daughter has suckered me into agreeing to, is temporary. I purposely purchased the house I have now to accommodate myself, my puppy and my shoes.

I do agree with your thinking

We too live a “simple” life, but everyone’s definition is different. We have the 5 bed, 3 bath house with pool. No, not what I really wanted, but it fit the budget and I needed to find a house in 3 days–that was 21+ yrs ago. We have 6 people living here and 2 birds. I have 4 cars in the drive–need another and a motorcycle in the garage. My “custom” furniture is what my DH had made–tables, chairs, benches–both indoor and out. We have redone the whole yard/pool, pavers and landscaping included. Took us 4 years, but it is done.

we mostly cook from scratch, we do grow some veggies and lots of herbs.

My frustration is people will try to outdo each other and not understand how the other person got to where they are now. I purchase by quality and check for prices. Rarely do I do an impulse purchase and when I do, I discuss it with my DH.
