Another Step Forward

Yesterday was payday, so that means that last night I did my running around along with bill paying and so forth. I did a little bit of grocery shopping, as well, but not a lot. 

The main thing this time is that I was able to nudge myself forward on a few goals. With the way that I have restructured my goal board, I am now able to pull down one “Long-Term Savings Goal” per month. Since last night was the second payday of the month, I was able to do that last night.

I also was able to finally get the fuel tank of Trea (my truck) filled back up to a full tank again. You see, ever since Waterton Lakes, I just haven’t had the cash in the budget to fill Trea’s tank all the way to the top, as I like her to be. 

Yesterday I put a bit of extra cash in the fuel budget and didn’t fill up my Generator Jerry Can. That did the trick as I was able to fill up Trea’s tank with a few bucks to spare. With this being summer, and since I am able to stretch my running o Jenny to once a week, I should be fine.

I also was able to put a bit of cash back into my Mid-Term Savings Account, which I plan to have fully funded next payday, just in time for my vacation. Which will commence the following Friday (as in two days later).

All the while I have been able to pay my other bills, stay above zero in my Personal Overdraft and keep my Long Term Savings Plan on track. 

These may seem like small goals in the larger scheme of things, and in truth they are. The thing to remember is that the journey to debt freedom is not made in leaps and bounds, but by small steps forward. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
