There are big changes coming to our family budget! We are in the middle of escrow on our first house ever! You can read more about our house hunt here.
We will be more than doubling what we pay for rent with our new mortgage payment (including taxes, PMI, and insurance). That means we need to make some changes with our budget.
The best thing is that because we have already lowered our expenses, paid off all our debt, and have been putting thousands of dollars in savings each month, the change won’t affect on our lifestyle much at all!
Once we close on the house (hopefully!), I will be sharing way more detail about the cash that goes into the process. There is a lot more then what a first time home buyer might think!
But for now, take a look at our budget update for last month to see what changes we are preparing for now BEFORE the expenses get real!
