Project Minivan


Drumroll please........


Project Minivan is coming to a close! After configuring the budget here recently, King Jo has discovered that if we just save $20 in the whole month of July, our van is paid for! Yeah Hurray! God is good!
The great news is that we haven't included the money that will come from the sale of one of our other vehicles. So, whether we get a thousand or two from the sale of an older car, that will go into our Emergency fund to help beef it up. And...God still provided all the money needed for the van in spite of our Economic Stimulus check being $600 less than we had hoped it would be!!! I'm so excited! The van has made it safely to MN (King Jo's sister recently moved back for a few months and brought it up from Texas) and my father-in-law, who is a car nut is busy cleaning and waxing it and sprucing it up even more than it already is. It will definitely be the nicest thing we have ever owned!
It's so neat to see how God provides even when it seems that there isn't a way and you are a young, one-income family. Even though people may think it's laughable that my next goal is to have a 3 month's expenses fully-funded Emergency Fund and then eventually a decent downpayment on a home, I think that through God's provision, careful budgeting and money management, and perseverance, it can be done!
