No more Preschool Payments!!

It may just be May 1st to most people, but today is the end of a chapter of our lives in the Templeton house. It’s a bittersweet moment. We got to write our LAST PRESCHOOL CHECK EVER!!!

While I am sad about my little man growing up, I am not sad about no longer having that expense. We are fortunate that we have only been paying for Part Time daycare, and Grandma watched both kids two days a week. We paid her by sending her articles about how we are helping her stay young by letting her watch the grandkids. 🀣

When I go back and add up our total for two kids, we have paid over $71,280 total. 😳 And that was just for part time. While it is a lot when you add it all up, both of our kids attended Montessori school and I do believe that a great preschool experience is a foundation for a lifelong love of learning. We moved a few years back, and wanted to ensure we lived in a great school district, so they will continue to have access to a great education as they go K-12. We also are fortunate that Matt works from home, so we have saved big on before/after care.

If you’re keeping track of my #debtfreejourney you will remember that a few weeks ago I also sold my car. Between no more daycare, no more car payment, and no more premium gas, we are saving around $1,150 a month!!! πŸŽ‰

That money can go towards our #realestateinvesting goals or towards paying off the last of our student loan debt.

Anyone else celebrating a major money win right now?! Let’s celebrate together. πŸŽ‰

    1. That’s an awesome accomplishment!! I paid mine off last year when I got them off. Stocking up that HSA to hopefully be more prepared for the kids braces. 😊
