You know what the best part of dreaming of your dream homestead is? When it starts to come true...we have the possibility of renting to own our dream home. It is 2800 square ft, 2 wood burners, 10 acres- 5 wooded-5 pasture/yard- pond. It is very exciting to think about. It also already has a barn/fencing.
It appears to be made for our family. It has a very open floor plan and 3 bathrooms/4 bedrooms. We know the people who currently are living there and it's her parents that would be "selling" the property to us. We have kicked our savings into high gear. The soonest we could move would probably be Dec. of 2010 so we'd like to have a huge chunk of money saved up by then. We are planning on living as frugally as possible until then. The kids are all very excited about the possibility of moving here so they are very supportive.
I'm looking for even more ways to save money. What is your best money saving tip?
