Saving up to move states and possibly rent for some time but eventually buy a house; a wedding/honeymoon; the future in general.

@countrygirl62312:  Also for a trip to Hawaii!  Maui, to be exact.  Actually, the trip is already booked (10 days end of January! WHOOP!) but I’ve been saving for a while already.

  • Wedding: April 2012

We’re now safely married, with no major debt, so we’re saving for:

  • A holiday to visit my dad in Ibiza – about £1000/$1600)
  • Completely redoing our house (posh sofa, bed, painting everywhere, sanding and polishing the floor in one room, lots of other bits and bobs of furniture) – about £3000/$5000
  • A second-hand car – about £10,000/$16,000

DH is heavily against buying new cars unless you have money to waste (as new cars lose at least half their value the moment you drive them off the lot). We’re looking to buy a 3 year old car in good condition.

Aside from the black money hole called a wedding, we’re saving money to pay off as much as my student loans as possible. We’re also rebuilding our nest egg that got severely dented with wedding expenses. Somewhere in all this we still have to buy the Fiance a new car bc his is almost kaput.

We’re currently saving for a destination wedding in March. Mr. LK and I are both bridal party members, so it will end up costing us $2500+ when all is said and done. We’re also saving for several big home projects (geothermal HVAC system $25-30k, invisible fence system $4k-ish, snow blower $2k, chicken coop and run $800ish, fenced garden with raised beds $800ish, etc.) And we’re saving for retirement and teen LK’s college bills.

A house/retirement.  We actually have most of our downpayment, but it involves taking at least some money from our RRSPs so if we save up more we won’t have to basically take a loan from ourselves.

We are saving like many others for the weddings. We’re paying for the destination wedding ourselves. We are lucky that my future in laws have assisted with down payments which gives us time to save for the final payments due right before the wedding. We are also saving to purchase the home we’re living in. Our goal is to have 10-20% down. Of course, once the wedding is over we’ll start saving for a baby. It seems we’ll always be saving for something. I guess it really never ends.

All my extra money is going towards the wedding, then I might need another four to six months to pay that off. Then we need to save $10k to sell our house (we have to take a loss), then down payment for our next home.
