Our summer plans were interrupted when landlord/BIL unexpectedly asked us to move out of his rental so an elderly relative could move in. It just so happened that some friends had asked us the day before if we wanted to move into a rental they had on their dairy ranch. The timing couldn't have been better.
Our new residence is in a great area and has almost twice the square footage for the same amount of rent as our old place. Plus, we have the use of a barn for storing all of DH's tools. A very good deal. It's so nice not to be cramped up in a tiny place anymore. Moving was not fun at all, but I'm glad we're here now.
Savings have increased some since last year but are still below the amount we had in 2007.
