Okay, so it is that time again, when I update how my progress is going on my “Grand Savings Plan!” (to build my "Homestead Fund")
Okay, so let’s see how I did . . .
For review, here is how things looked from last payday . . .
That is 17.1% (of my Savings Target)
And this is how things look like, after the dust settled on this payday’s budget . . .
That’s right things jumped up to 18.1% of my savings target.
That means I put away 1% of my total Savings Target this payday.
That looks like an impressive number but I am pretty sure is due to rounding up. You see, I only use a single digit decimal place.
So, while I did put a vast majority of my paycheque towards my savings, it was not a full percentage point.
I’ll take the win though, and take the crossing off of a square.
Building savings is a slow process, and one that is done one paycheque at a time, over a long period of time.
You have to have dedication and a way to keep you motivated to stick with it. (Such as a chart to remind you of how far you are towards your savings goal.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
