I haven't looked at any houses yet so my plans will probably change again but at least this plan has made me stop all unnecessary purchases. I need to focus on paying off my credit card and not racking up any new debt.
I am also trying to get the dogs adopted out so that I have less expense for dog food, treats and toys and gas. It doesn't seem to be working too well. The dog that was going to be returned last month, well, she never got returned to me. Turns out she got dumped by her adopter and ended up back at the dog pound. My friend went to pick her up today and now she is back at my house so I have 9 dogs again. Luckily another friend said she could foster her on Friday so I will be back to 8 dogs on Friday. I just can't seem to get down to 7 dogs like I want to.
