How is my savings plan going? Well, last month was tough with the rental house expenses but I managed to save $400 which was $100 less than my estimate. April is going to be tough too because although I have a new tenant (yay!). Since they moved in after the 1st, they only paid partial rent. I was notified that they paid $750 today. Take out 10% for the management company and subtract $780 for the eviction fiasco and I still owe the management company. There is also the lingering matter of the last renter's deposit verses the "imaginary" rent that my management company paid me for November when the check bounced. I probably still owe a couple hundred dollars difference. In May I expect to be in the positive range again.
My online business idea is creeping along at a snail's pace. Once my nephew came back from his grandparents my mind became cluttered with school routines and homework again. My next step is to take photos and write descriptions for my products and then I must pick an online shopping cart and start putting the store together. I must admit it is scary to think about launching a store. I might not get any orders or I might get a lot of orders. Either way, it means more responsibility for me.
This weekend I plan to go out to my property again and retrieve more boxes and my gutters. I must get those gutters up before it gets too hot. But first I have to finish painting the fascia boards. One step at a time. I can't imagine ever running out of things to do on my weekends.
