Grand Savings Update

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 . . .

That is 18.2% (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 19.3% of my savings target. 

That means I put away 1.1% of my total Savings Target this payday.

Okay, so this is progress and as I said yesterday I stole an extra hundred in there by topping up what I made in interest on my savings up to the next hundred.

The big one will be next payday when I get to 20% of my savings target. Until then I will make sure to keep doing what I am doing until I get to that big number. 

Every 5% is a large deal for me. Yet another way to keep me motivated and moving forward on this journey. 

As well the further I go down this road, and the further away from 0% savings I have, the more at ease I will feel.

After living all of my working life (so far) with no savings, I never want to go without it again. 

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