Project Minivan Update!

For those of you who are wondering how we're doing with Project Minivan: Here's the scoop!

We now have $1,600 in savings for the van.
We have not yet received our Stimulus check. Some of our friends have gotten less than they expected, so we don't know how much it will be FOR SURE, but when that comes we should be at least $500 within our goal. Which means if we can save $500 over the next three months (June, July, August) we will have our van paid for! The cool part is that we will be selling one of our current vehicles when the van comes so we will have an ADDITIONAL $1,000-$2,000 from that sale for our fund so we can likely pay my in-laws a bonus for the gas money they will spend driving it out and maybe pad our emergency fund further.

God is so good to us! He gets all the credit for meeting this need in our lives!

Next project with the van: We need to get it added onto our car insurance THIS WEEK!

I wanted to let you know of some information I read on another blog regarding people not receiving as much of a stimulus check as they thought. There has been a widespread error in some cases that caused people not to receive correct money for their dependents. The IRS is aware of this and will be sending additional checks later this summer to those who were shorted. Here is where I read of this:

God bless in your savings!
