Trashfinds, I’ve missed you so! Well Amy, where have you been?
I’ve been committed to looking for, ultimately finding, and then BUYING our move to, work it, build it, junk it up (in a tidy and organized manner at least), and die on it chunk of land (what many refer to as a ‘forever property’, but I roll my eyes when I hear that). The ‘our’, is Mr. Trashfinds, two big goofy dogs, and a few cats. Every waking moment (give or take…) since the last Trashfinds post over a year ago that wasn’t spent at work or some other necessary time-suck, was used to research, inquire, drive nine hours, look at, talk to a realtor, research some more, discuss, look at again, and then BUY our forever property (well, technically, a financial institution owns it for the next 20 years, but you get the idea).
I just want to point out an extremely important, significant, tide-turning thing about choices. If we were not steadfast about how we live, and what we reuse, consume and buy or don’t buy, we would never have been able to make this a reality. NEVER. EVER.
The what, how, and why of our property, in addition to building a livable structure in another state 500+ miles away from where we live now, will be a significant addition to my posts on Trashfinds. I find most accounts of “we-looked-and-looked-to-buy-property” stories to be boring, uninteresting, and redundant, so I promise to stay away from that.
I want to know about you – are you living or working toward what makes you happy? How does your thrift and reuse help you with your goal?
