56. Morning Marketeers....
:donut: and lurkers. The move was a success. We managed to move the RV to a storage space ($45 vs $600+). We have an apartment at $250 a month. We have already felt the savings and will be paying off Hubby's credit card charges to India this month. Other remaining debts will be paid off in short order (our van and some personal loans). I may even pay my retirement buy back early-one can only hope. I have owed for so long I can't imagine what it will be like to have a paycheck free and clear. We are very excited.

Hubby apologized for hauling in all the boxes into the living room and bed room. It looks like we live in box canyon, or at least an episode of The Hoarders. I told him that every time I look at those boxes, I see over $600). But I went through 3 boxes yesterday on top of doing the weekly laundry, cooking etc. I have a goal of at least one box a week day and 3 per weekend. We should reclaim our home by the end of December.

There is so much going on in the financial world. They have kicked the can so far down the road for so long that we are now in the dark alley and can kick the can no more. This just isn't a Depression, it is a total paradigm shift we are facing. While it seems I have no say in the way our government chooses to handle this, I can be responsible for my individual actions and hope that others adopt a more just and sharing attitude. The US is still rich in resources, but we need to use them more wisely. We need to stop the wholesale theft of these resources and our treasury if we are to have any kind of decent future for ourselves and our grandchildren.

Happy hunting and watch out for the bears.
