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 23.4% (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 24.3% of my savings target.
That means I put away 0.9% of my total Savings Target this payday.
I was close to putting 1% of my target away, but ah well, another of those last minute expenses cropped up.
The key is to keep putting something into savings each payday while at the same time keeping on top of my bills.
I have targets but it is not the end of the world if I miss them . . . as long as I keep striving for them.
Just like with this missing of my target this payday, my “Estimated Completion Date” was pushed forward to July 22, 2022.
Yet this date is all but irrelevant, as I am not going to start my Homesteading Process in the middle of summer (not enough time before winter to do anything).
This is why I have pretty much decided to keep going until the April 7, 2023 before I will head off and start my Homesteading Process.
Lottery win, or spontaneous crowdfunding notwithstanding.
So, while this budget didn’t turn out as I had hoped, it turned out okay. I got my bills paid, and I put cash into my savings. So that is a win.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
