  1. So…how do you feel about number 72 now? And…if you did this all over again, starting with this list, what would you leave, change and take off?


    1. I am thinking of doing it again, I am very happy where we are now. Knowing our lives 8 years ago homeownership wasn’t in the cards. Our last rental in Texas before Casey joined the army we had the opportunity to buy for 79,000 and I regret being unable too. It is now worth 220,000 as a townhome.
