Last spring, as you may recall, I purchased an older, let's say vintage, motorhome. And I named her Laverne. I was really fortunate because she is in excellent condition for her age. I had budgeted a set amount to purchase a motorhome and when I found Laverne I was able to buy her for less than half of what I had planned to spend. That was also the biggest reason I was able to make the purchase an entire year sooner than expected.
|My little backsplash project - $24|
Radiator cover grates! Pretty clever!
Now my goal is to put back all of the money I took out to pay for her, register, insure and license her. Additionally, I plan to add on what I spent on the first renovations as well as "interest". I'm really excited about this goal because I'm paying myself! How cool is that?! Pretty dang cool, if you ask me.
Of course I have a deadline, because what is a goal with out that? My goal is to get it all put back within six months. I've already made a good sized dent by making two "payments" last month, one on each payday and I plan to continue to do that for the duration.
|Bathroom update - $258|
The tiles consumed most of that amount - $209
Pricey, but I'm really glad I did it
The rest was the showerhead and some paint
We'll see how well I do. After all, between now and then are several birthdays and let's not forget about Christmas too. I've got a pretty good plan mapped out so I'm very optimistic and I'll be keeping you posted on my progress.
