I did not have very long to get moved out of my apartment. I had bought a house and thought that I would have more time, but the closing date for the house was moved a couple of times, and I didn’t have a chance to get everything packed. I needed to find some Aurora movers to come help me. I worried that I was calling too late and there would be no one who could come on such short notice, but I found a great company that said they could handle it for me. I was so grateful since I’m older and would have a rough time doing it all myself so quickly.
I never knew if I would be able to own my own home. I have never made a ton of money, but I am very good at saving it. I have also never been married. So, it is a little harder to buy a piece of property on your own if you don’t have a partner and don’t make a lot of money. Despite that, I did what I could to scrimp and save as much as possible. It used to be that I would buy a lot of things that are not really necessary in life when I was in my twenties. By my thirties, I realized that I was just throwing money away on things that I barely used, if at all. Once I realized that, I found myself being able to save much more easily.
I was lucky enough to find an older place that was not very expensive. I drove by one day by accident and saw the real estate agent putting the sign up outside. I stopped to ask her about it, and was stunned to see that the price was pretty low. I knew that it would sell quickly. I thought about how much I had saved, and then I immediately told her I was interested in the house. It was pure luck that I happened to drive by that day.
