The Dreamers journey to financial independence is set to begin on February 2024.  Each month I will post an update on our progress, including expenses, incomes and overall net worth for the Dreamer family. This month has been at a typical expense rate but we have had some extra charges for our homeschool books, supplies and another bookshelf.  The good news is we will be able to use the books for the next ...

June 2017 – Show Me the Money (Bacon) This summer has been a hot one so far, not only from the heat but also in our home payoff quest this year.  We finally broke the $10,000 mark last month and we are on track to the mortgage off by the end of the year. I am excited to see what we can do with our savings, HSA and 457 accounts once the home payments ...

Get on the Path Whenever talking to others about finances and the subject of retirement comes up I usually get a glazed over look from my compadre. The thought of retirement is always far far away and to taboo to even think about it.  The kicker being they haven't even started planning for it. So let's get you started down the retirement path with 7 Easy steps: Step 1: Income vs Expenses Write down all the ...

April 2017 – Show Me the Money (Bacon) With a new baby in the house things are definitely out of wack.  Lack of sleep causes most people to make rash decisions about their finances and we are no exception.  The car buying experience is a prime example of salesmen using the long delays and the waiting game, wearing down buyers into making decisions that they usually would not make in order to just get ...

Closest Conversion With the addition of a new dreamer comes lots of new stuff.  God has a funny way of waiting until you sell or donate the very last baby item to give a special surprise.  Luckily with the support of good friends and family we have been able to restock our baby arsenal with almost everything we need and more.  But now we have had to due the baby shuffle ...

Baby Dreamer It had been 4 years since our last child so we forgot the stress involved with being in a hospital.  Lots of paper work with fine print, nurses with differing demeanors, doctors from around the world and no sleep.  But we decided it was very much worth the effort as you can see.  We have been running on little sleep, but when we do sleep it is some of the ...

Busy as a Bee The Spring weather has been great here in the South.  Warmth and sunshine, sorry Northerners, has brought out all the wild flowers and the insects too. My garden is in bloom with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, raspberries and more so we are pretty excited as we get to check its' progress daily. Along with that has been our addition of the Bee Ranch in the back corner of our ...

January 2017 – Show Me the Money (Bacon) Baby, baby, baby.  We have been busy trying to reorganize our home and prepare for the new arrival in late March.  A new closet system to store clothes and re-configuring our bedroom to accommodate a bassinet.  So far we have been blessed with allot of hand me down items from others at our church and family too.  The closet system turned out nice and since ...

Goodbye 2016With the year almost over and our journey just begun, I have had time to reflect on what we have accomplished so far. The first step to any plan is to layout your high level goals and assess if any adjustments need to be made. Somethings are on track and others did not happen this year.  But, "There is always next year", as the old adage goes :) Paying off the mortgage ...
