Wow, I can't believe it is April 1st!! Only two weeks left until the end of tax season! It has been an interesting season - so much different than the last firm I was at. I just submitted my time sheet for 137 hours for the last two weeks, and I've also been putting in about 10-15 hours week at my part time job. I am ready for a break! (And some house hunting)! I posted in the bs3 challenge that our snowball was 5124 this month, putting us at $20058 total savings (not including efund). So, we are "only" $17442 short on our goal of 37500.
I still have to do our own taxes, and we will owe, since I was planning higher HSA/traditional IRA contributions, and I've since decided that I am treating this 37500 goal as "debt". Still, I should know better than to put myself in this position.
I am sooo ready to buy a house and get out of here!! It helps my gazelle intensity that 95% of our mail is now for the owners, which makes me furious every time I get the mail. (We have to sort and deliver weekly to "their" side of the property, so they can illegally claim a property tax exemption as if they live in the house). Not to mention that he is on the property almost daily and I'm sure it will be even worse in the Spring... Soo frustrating!
I feel confident that we can save the 37500 and find something and close by late spring/early summer. We just need to stay focused! (And I need to keep working full time plus the part time job!!)
