 Here it is what I bought on three days notice and only $29k in my pocket.  I had to give up my mcmansion I will show you a picture of that to make you understand that I was moving quickly, nothing new being military, but I could not afford $1,500 a month for this mcmansion, that is if we only ate ramen, the kids would have to give up any extra curricular activities, like, say, college?   Oh! and my kids have formed a bad habit, I should have quit them from liking that simple thing called F O O D!  lmao

My marriage home. 

 My three day weekend buy house, my current home.

My childhood home, hate those photoshop pink flowers. 

This is the new house I am going to build.  It IS handicap accessible.  I love it.

Not sure why some felt the need for the "drama popcorn".  This isn't a "drama" group.  We don't judge here.  Especially when it comes to saving money.

To OP:

Downsizing can be a good thing.  It helps us regroup and setup budgets more suited to our needs and wants.  Real estate is a catch 22 a lot of the time.  And, if you can shuffle it around at the right time to snag a good deal, it's truly awesome.

Yes, it is funny how we are all addicted to eating and a roof over our head.  LOL.  And, when we have kids, it is important to realize all the things they will need throughout their lives, which most often includes the great expense of college.

Sounds like you are on the right track.  Keep up the good work.  =)
