#seriouspostalert so all you hookers reading this should sit down and have a listen. I hesitate posting these because I know my situation is different from some people in the #debtfreecommunity, but it's also my truth. This weekend, we were gifted a combined $26k towards the purchase of our home. This money will finish off our new baby step 3 needs ($48k once we're home owners), will fulfill our insurance sinking fund for our increased insurance costs (again, as home owners), and the small remainder will go towards our down payment. I feel very fortunate to have married into a family that has lived a Dave-approved lifestyle, despite never having heard of Dave Ramsey. I aim to repay them by setting ourselves up for financial independence so we can continue to pay it forward both within our families and beyond.
