I created this blog to document my families journey as we navigate through our biggest undertaking.
After years of couponing, going without or on the super cheap just to make ends meet, we were determined to take advantage of the housing crash. Though our home value declined as others had we continued fixing it up, living on a budget and spending hours looking at foreclosures, Fannie Mae, Freddy Mack, HUD, etc.
We were finally able to sell our house, allowing us to find and buy a foreclosure. It had been vacant for almost 3 years but as habitable we could actually live in it while we remodeled. AND most importantly, we could pay CASH and live mortgage free.
Sounds great, but it has been very challenging. The struggles and challenges have been trying, but the family togetherness and pride from doing it our self is priceless!
