I think it's not selling because it's dated and very expensive for the area. There are other houses in the same neighborhood for a lot less that don't need updates.

I don’t think it looks dated at all. They do always say though don’t buy the most expensive house in the neighborhood. Surely it’s bigger and on a nicer lot then the other houses in the neighborhood if it’s more.

My family did that when we sold our house. We forgot to dig him up after we left lol. We did have a offer within 12 hrs but they backed out. We then had a cash offer four days later that went through.

I don’t think it looks TOO dated. Mainly the hardwood color. And that’s throughout unfortunately. The other bathrooms are dated with their gold fixtures and mirrors.
I think it’s the choppiness of the house that’s the main drawback. There are so many rooms. All separate. It seems like such a divided home. Which people don’t want nowadays. Open concept is key. I don’t know what I would do with all those rooms. There seem to be so many “sitting” rooms. The spaces just don’t seem user friendly for real life. Such a bad decision buying that monster.

And if they are talking about needing new appliances, the appliances must be getting older.
They bought pretty much the most expensive house in the neighborhood, and as has been said, they need to paint the rooms a more neutral color. It's horrendously expensive for Hoover Alabama, and there are 4-5 bedroom, 3,000SF+ houses in their community for $300K LESS.
That's why it's not selling.

Can someone please explain to me why someone struggling with debt would do a "no budget Valentine's shopping" video?
I loathe those "no budget" videos anyway, especially when people refer to them as "challenges". What is challenging about shopping with no budget?
Give someone a $20 and see who can get the nicest gift, or something like that. That's a challenge.

Oh my goodness, Katie said in the vlog today she probably spent $100 on the kids last year for valentine's. That is insane for a holiday that is geared toward couples! I understand wanting to give your kids the world but that is just crazy. I don't even think I spent that much on my kids for Christmas (they are 4 and 1 and have no expectations).

Even her dollar tree haul was excessive. I can already see Katie going back to her old habits. Instead of seeing if she had Valentine bags at home she just threw some in the cart and said “oh whats $2?”.. thats the kind of attitude that got you $100,000 in debt, Katie..

I’m not giving their tacky and classless asses a view. Please tell me they didn’t actually go to the store, pick a bunch of things out for one another and then not actually buy it?

Seriously, who does that? That’s worse than Ellie letting her kids pick out a ball to play with IN THE STORE having no intention to actually buy it.

This is correct...it needs major updating in areas and they are asking for it as if it's totally renovated and like new. Not to mention from the pictures it appears as though the roof is original and will need replacing soon and all other homes in the neighborhood are selling in the 400's and they are asking OVER 600 for theirs.

Geez Louise. I thought she was doing the minimalist approach. What bunch of crap. My kids get nothing tangible from me. Just small treat to hand out at school. We spent the night playing board games. Gross over consumption. That will all end up in a land full soon enough. Show they love with your time

WTF is she rambling about?

I don't get a "sense of love and joy" in this picture. I get a sense of tequila. Or maybe lemon drop shooters. Why would anyone who is happy with their life look at that picture and wish they were back there? I guess that's the point: she's not happy.
She wants to go back to being very young with no responsibility. THAT'S what she wants to "reconnect" with.
I have a picture of myself from Halloween one of the first years I was living on my own and making good money. I'm wasted in the picture. I don't look at it and wonder what happened to that person. I know. I matured. I raised a couple of great people who still love me and like being with me. Yeah, I was having fun when the picture was taken, but I have a different kind of fun now.

I think their whole relationship was built around partying and the only way they truly had fun together was when they were drinking. If you go back and listen to their budget back when they were first married they allotted a huge amount for "fun" and "football". Drinking has seemed to be pretty important in their relationship. I don't think that parenthood has been very fulfilling for them and personally think that they both miss the lack of responsibility. Cullen admitted in his podcast that they both had a drinking problem back when the addiction issues came out. I truly believe what he said and think that they both have issues with drinking. They even talked about it in regard to their current budget. I enjoy a mixed drink every now and then when we go out for dinner but if I was in a severe financial crisis like them it would be one of the first things I would cut out. Drinking just seems like it is very important to them to the extreme.

Going back? She never went away from it lol! I was pretty appalled watching the literally useless crap she bought for the kids. Pretty hypocritical after going Marie Kondo and bragging how smart Gaines was for saying she didn't want to have too much stuff. I'm starting to feel unhappy by the thought alone when I imagine I would have bought that for my kids. It's only for Gaines she's doing it, being afraid to hurt her feelings. Claiming that Valentines is important to them (defensive as she was in the car again) has just become an excuse to express her love for Gaines with overloading her with materialistic stuff. "Valentines is important" for adults who have sex is one thing, but kids have nothing to do with Valentines. Sure, she cannot give Brooks nothing, but I think he wouldn't care less and what is he going to do with a heart cushion??? The only thing he seemed to be truly happy about was the "gift" he got that wasn't for Valentines but something he needed, his new boots!

Also wanted to add they already cancelled the cleaning lady and yard guy.

And cooking fresh is not "SOOO UNREALISTIC!!", not at all! My whole country in Europe does it and so do some other European countries, it's part of having 'a cuisine', people would maybe not realize is related. An average meal costs maybe 30 minutes, which is only 15 minutes more than I would assume it would take people who don't cook fresh meals. It's also not making the spaghetti itself from scratch we're talking about and I have never been to a farmers market in my life. "TOO TIME-CONSUMING!". C&K are at home all day, so nothing, literally nothing is too time-consuming for them. And I assume Katie is reasonably proud to be a 'Southern chick', her sister cooks meals and I assume her mother did as well at least when she was young. Katie is just spoiled and entitled, you only have to look at how she is raising her precious princess to become the same. It's also a misconception it would be more expensive, it's not. Processed food by definition is more expensive because you pay for the work people and machines took out of your hands. - Sorry for my late reply but really wanted to set this straight!

I work full time and have been sick with a Crohn's flare for the last month. I manage to cook fresh meals and I don't even use a boxed kit. I plan meals for my daughter and myself, I do the Walmart pickup on my way home from work, and once a week we do chicken tenders and frozen French fries. I want a combination instant pot and air fryer, so I am waiting for them to go on sale. I do use my crockpot a lot. Chicken breasts cook up fast. Rice, garlic, ginger, some low sodium soy sauce and veggies-- boom. Stir fry.
Katie-- we all know you read here. So here's a tip: lget fresh chicken breasts (or thighs), some potatoes and green beans. Cut up the potatoes, throw everything in a 9X13 baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil, and season with garlic powder, and whatever seasonings you like. Or you can use a Good Seasons Italian dressing packet. Put it in the oven for 45 minutes at 375.
There are lots of healthy recipes for the crock pot. You can use it for things besides cheeseburger soup or loaded baked potato soup.
It's really not that hard, and SO much better . Rotisserie chickens can be good, but for the price, it's probably better to get the whole chickens on sale and roast them.
And eat WITH your children. No wonder they're picky. Kids do what they see, not what you tell them.

It is. And only takes 10 minutes to prep. You can use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, and use different vegetables if you like. If you use broccoli, put it in about halfway through or it overcooks! I like the Good Seasons Italian dressing packet, but it's got more sodium than I like to use generally. So I use garlic powder and Italian seasoning usually. My daughter loves it, and we have leftovers for lunch the next day!
And thanks for the get well wishes!

I saw a post on Facebook where it showed how to even freeze the crockpot meals in advance. Then all you have to do is throw it in the crockpot or instapot.

Especially if you freeze it in one of those crock pot liners! Then you throw the whole thing in the crock pot, turn it on, 6-8 hours later, you have dinner! And because you used the liner bag, the cleanup is minimal.
