404 weeks remaining....

So this week I would like to talk about our progress with savings and getting out of debt. Our savings has been stepped up a little more in the past two weeks, saving as many pennies as possible. With still a little credit card debt remaining, we are getting very excited about living without debt which is the biggest thing we hear is needed before we get out on the road. I have historically been a spender and buy things I want without thinking. These last few months have been an eye opener on how much I was wasting. I am really enjoying saving and wish I would have started years ago. Once we got started, the ball really started rolling and we can see the end of debt and a lifestyle of living within our means.

This month marks 7 1/2 years remaining till we hit the road and we really can see ourselves living in a RV full time. We talk about it almost every time we are in the truck. I have been listening to a lot of podcasts about fulltiming and am getting a lot of ideas and things to think about. Recently I have found a few blogs and podcasts of people that either changed their minds or just plain quit the lifestyle. I found that a little disconcerting but will continue researching and dreaming.

I'm hoping more people begin to read this blog and comment. If you read this blog and can offer any tips or suggestions, please comment and like this page or just let me know you were here. I think this blog will get more exciting as the years go by.

See you on the road.

  1. The full-time lifestyle isn't for everyone. There's pros and cons to everything in life and this lifestyle requires flexibility and compromise. So far, we're loving it. I'll try and shoot you an email on joining the Elks. If you don't hear from me, you can contact me at Happy saving, Ingrid
