If you’ve noticed the lack of deals lately, I apologize as I’ve been busy packing to move. I’m just moving down the street, but it still requires everything be sorted and loaded, etc. It is giving me a good excuse to donate a lot of stuff to Goodwill and The Salvation Army. And a good excuse to halt my bargain shopping, although I’m having a few withdrawals, so to not add to my list of things to pack. Watch out for when after I move, as my new pantry is even bigger than my existing one!
So, why am I moving? With my son already away at college and my twins turning eighteen next year, it will soon just be my youngest daughter and me, and we don’t need such a big house. And the fact that I’ll be saving money on property taxes and utility bills plus receiving a lower fixed interest rate from my bank on my mortgage loan definitely makes me happy! I’d be even happier if I didn’t have to pay closing costs and appraiser fees! But at least, I saved realtor fees since I bought and sold privately.
