Josh and I found a house! Well a townhouse atleast…It’s got brand new furniture-including a Washer and Dryer (which I don’t have now and CAN NOT wait to be able to use!), 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, a Garage, an attic, a security system, a patio that overlooks the pond, a big kitchen with lots of cabinet and counter space….literally everything that we wanted. It’s in a great community and we have actually already met the neighbors. The going price for something like this is about $1800 (at the cheapest) but Josh and I found it for only $100 more than what we are paying. And they have agreed to give us a military clause so we won’t be held to the rent when we move. It’s EXACTLY what we were hoping to find.
The only snag we have hit is that the landlord wants 1 months rent for the security deposit to hold it for us, and then the first months rent to move in. That’s a lot of money that we honestly don’t have just laying around. So, we decided to sell a bunch of stuff that we aren’t using right now and some things that we want to get new. Especially since all of our furniture we got when we got married was hand-me-downs. So, I posted our kitchen table (I found one I like better for cheaper than what this one was), our bedroom furniture (again…found a cheaper set for less money that we like better), and my old Laptop that we aren’t using- on craigslist.com. We have sold the bedroom furniture and the kitchen table and are getting rid of them tomorrow. Unfortunately though, we got scammed when trying to sell our computer.
Long story short, some guy offered to buy it for $750 and have me ship it for him. Then we never got our money. Luckily, we got it back and didn’t lose any money, the post office hadn’t shipped it yet and gave me my money back. So, needless to say we did learn our lesson on that. We still have a little ways to go on reaching the security deposit, but the lady we are working with is going to hold it for us regardless. She is really nice and seems to understand our situation, so everyone keep your fingers crossed that this will work out for us. I still have some stuff for sale- A Swivel Rocker, Some Farberware Dishes, A Pack-And-Play that has hardly ever been used…
We are still having trouble getting out of our lease. We are waiting on a call from the corporate people to let them know what all has been going on. Everyone please pray that we can get out of this. Where we are now is not a good situation for us or our son…we desperately need out of this lease.
Hope everyone had a better Monday than we did! God Bless!
