More Preparation Before The Move!

In preparation for the big move, I decided to take our car into the shop for its 30k tune-up. We are planning on renting a 24ft truck, towing one car with the rental truck, and driving our second car. All in all, 1,500 miles of open road lay between us and our new home.

It definitely will be an exciting trip, but definitely a long one. We are figuring that we will be able to manage around 50mph with the truck, and our goal is drive 500 miles/day. This means we are looking at most likely 3 days of driving. The car checked out fine, but more outflow of our money to pay for this. $600 all said and done! I keep telling myself that it is better to have the car checked out and ready to go then hit a problem on the road that could possible cost us not only much more money but more importantly, time!

Thanks again to D over at Divorce To Financial Freedom for reminding us to not get too stressed out from this entire ‘move’ thing!
