Money Gal Coaching: It’s finally happening and we pay cash!

Money Gal Coaching: It’s finally happening and we pay cash!

This is where the idea of #vanlife came in and we finally decided to go after it! No, we didn’t have tens of thousands to buy one of those fancy vans and a loan was out of the question, so we decided to start looking at older ones that will need some TLC. After two road trips we realized our Jeep wasn’t cut out for longer adventures. It drove wonderfully, had modern luxuries and great mileage, but we couldn’t sleep in it and we had too much stuff to make it enjoyable to temporarily live out of. In preparation we sold my car to become a one car household during this transition. We are fortunate to have this flexibility since I work from home and we don’t have kids.

Since I have been working from home I have been driving my car so much less, and I sort of love it! Of course I drive my car and this is not an article about how you should take up biking but it is a lesson in searching deep into our souls to find out what we truly love in life. I’m jumping in this week to talk about something that I’m hopeful will inspire you to take action on something that you have been dreaming about, but haven’t quite pulled the trigger on yet. If a global pandemic has taught me anything, it’s that we should be spending as much time as possible doing what we love most with whom we love most!

For my partner and I it is traveling, specifically around the United States. Yes, we are all about international travel but we live in such a large country and we want to explore every nook and cranny. And to be honest, we are obsessed with our dog and she can’t travel internationally. Kelly Blodgett launched Money Gal Coaching with a goal of serving people who, like her, were burdened by debt. You can get her tips for paying down debt on a regular basis at Bring Me The News, in addition to the Money Gal Coaching website and Facebook page. Here is her latest story:

What is your version of van life? What are your dreams that you are setting aside because you haven’t sorted out how to make it work? I want this to be your sign to make time in your life for your dreams. What do you need to do to start making it a reality? How much money do you need to set aside to ensure as little stress as possible? By selling my car, setting money aside each month and focusing on our van life dream, we were able to pull the trigger when the perfect van popped up! This adventure vehicle will ensure we make the most of our long-weekend getaways. It means that we will be able to see more state and national parks as we will have to pay less in lodging. It means that we will be able to have our pup involved in all of the memories we will be making as we explore our beautiful country.

Purchasing this van is something that we have always dreamt about but it never felt realistic. We can’t afford three cars. We both have jobs, what are we going to do with a van meant to live out of? COVID has taught me that anything is realistic and it just takes a little bit of thoughtful planning to make sure it happens without added stress. After months of searching and lots of patience our dream van popped up on Marketplace and I jumped on the opportunity to schedule a time that same day to see the van in person. The van was everything that we ever imagined and we paid cash on the spot so that we didn’t miss out.
