September 22nd 2015 is our move out date. Renting is coming to an end. Home ownership is scheduled to begin on September 16th 2015.
Rent is dead. Long live the rent. What I really want to happen is long live home ownership. It was pretty nice to save a bit on rent by moving out before the end of the month. We pro-rated the rent and kept $320 in our pocket.
By saving a bit on rent I simply added that money to the Blow Money category. If you ever bought a home then you know there is always something looking to take your money.
With the current budget I am already thinking ahead to the first mortgage payment on November 1st 2015. With four paydays between now and then I decided I would be sure to have the money ASAP.
Priority one is to pay the mortgage. This shouldn't be difficult. The best way to have the money is to work hard and budget. Payments will be made online but I still enjoy having the cash set aside, even for the mortgage. It will go into the bank when the time is right.
I have started buying movies. One movie a month via iTunes. Never before did I buy movies. It really feels like a luxury to own a movie. The first movie I bought is Mad Max: Fury Road
To much fun is a real thing. Furniture is really expensive. Mrs. MBG and I have bought some nice pieces. The good news is that we are done buying furniture for a long long time. I think they will last forever so having some fun seems like a good idea.
I enjoy money and bacon.
