Let's get into it and talk about what's new in my world!
Yes..again. I hope that one month I'll be able to take this off my list! I've talked a lot about the ups and downs of house hunting, and I finally have some positive updates to share. First, some story time.
I talked last month about getting into a bidding war for house #1 and losing. Right after that, a great house popped up on the market in my ideal neighborhood for a steal. I knew it would go quickly, so I scheduled a visit with my realtor that night and had my parents come along. We pulled up, and- no lie- there were ten other people there. Crazy! We then learned that there were offers pouring in for this house and we had 24 hours to put in our highest and best offer. Needless to say, we ended up not getting the house.
Fast forward to a week or so after that, and I was looking around at houses that were above and below my price range just for fun (it's always kind of entertaining and depressing to look at million dollar houses) when one popped up right down the street from that "perfect" house. It happened to be on the same street as another house that was sitting on the market for a while and had a ton of issues. Dan and I always said that we would love to live on that street if only a different house was for sale. It almost felt like fate- so we immediately put in an offer. Once again, it was a bidding war, but we finally won!
This all happened about a month ago, and there have been a ton of negotiations going on. We're still negotiating after the inspection, which is why I've been cautious to share any news. I'm so afraid of jinxing what I think is the right house for us! I'm just hoping that everything works out, and we'll be moved in by the next What's New With You link-up! Wish us luck :)
Saving MoneyThank you to everyone for suggesting that I try out Aldi's for grocery shopping! I'm too embarrassed to share how much I spend on groceries, but I'm so happy to say that in February, I spent less than half what I did in January!
So far I've liked most of the products that I tried from Aldi's, but here are my absolute favorites!
- Barrisimo K-Cups : I got the hazelnut flavor and it's amazing
- Dried fruit and nuts : Great selection and really cheap price. I use these to make my energy bites!
- Chocolate : So many amazing flavors. I think my favorite is the coffee and cream one
