I got a surprising, yet very welcome, phone call yesterday. A friend of mine was so impressed that I had turned my life around that she decided to contribute to my Down Payment Fund!
Yep . . .
Really . . .
Honestly . . .
No kidding . . .
ALRIGHT! She actually called to say that she was paying me back the money she had borrowed . . . sheesh.
Don’t look at me that way, I didn’t lie . . . It IS money that she is sending me, and it IS going into my Down Payment fund . . . so it’s kinda true, right?
Well, one thing’s for sure, there goes me spinning this into the start of a grass roots crowdfunding campaign.
You know where so many people want to help me succeed so they donate so I can not only buy a house but actually buy some furniture too.
(As it is now I plan to buy a coffee maker and a camping cot on move in day.)
Anywhoos, the other bit of happy news is that I ran a very preliminary budget for my next payday (on the 22nd).
As it stands, it looks as though (Fingers crossed) that I will be out of my personal overdraft and actually start building up that contingency fund back up to $1000.00.
Once it is at $1000.00 then every spare dime (including the illusive and rumoured yet heavily doubted “Tax Refund”) will go into the Down Payment Fund.
So I am on my way to getting that house, coffee maker and camping cot (crowdfunding campaign or not).
