Okay, so it is that time again, when I update how my progress is going on my “Grand Savings Plan!”
Okay, so let’s see how I did . . .
For review, here is how things looked from last payday . . .
And this is how things look like, after the dust settled on this payday’s budget . . .
That’s right things jumped up to 10.1% of my savings target. That means I put away 0.9% of my total Savings Target this payday.
I do need to pause and reflect on the fact that even though I put a toe over the line, I have indeed crossed over the 10% of my savings target. That bottom row is now fully crossed off!
As with my Last Payday, I put away less than 1% of my target. This is frustrating, but it is what it is and I do hope to make up a bit of lost ground with the next 4 paydays.
You see these next four paydays should be larger due to the fact that much fewer deductions are taken off. So this will increase my take home pay, even though my gross doesn’t go up.
Even if I don’t get a bump, and if I just keep plugging away at my savings as it is, that’s okay. I will still get there, eventually.
Even if some large life event comes my way and I have to abandon my Grand Savings Plan, any savings is better than no savings.
As always; Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
