We went looking at houses yesterday. The housing market out in riverside county is crazy! We looked at a house that I loved it's still a little high in my opinion, but we could probably afford it. It was so nice. It has 4 bedrooms 2 bathrooms. It's on a huge lot and was built a few years ago. It has a decent elementary school and is only about 20 minutes from our house now so the commute wouldn't be too bad. The coolest part is it has a playhouse (with electricity and AC and everything), and a nice wooden jungle gym/swing set. I don't think we'll be moving anytime soon, we want to get more money saved and see how much further down the market goes. I read somewhere the average price in riverside county is going down $5000 a week. But it's nice to see what's out there!
Part of saving money is trying to be conservative and not spend as much money. I'm trying to put as much in savings as possible every month. I guess I won't be looking at hotels in Vegas anytime soon. A vacation sure sounds nice right about now.
