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 26.5% (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 26.5% of my savings target. 

That means I put away 0% of my total Savings Target this payday. Actually that is a win as it could have gone backwards, as in I lost savings.

So, while I was able to keep my savings intact, I didn’t put anything into savings. This was because it was Truck Insurance renewal time.

I sat down with the insurance agent and was able to adjust my insurance so as to save a bit of cash on my truck insurance. 

The loss is the date that you see on the bottom. That date went from July 7, 2022, to August 7, 2022. That means that I lost a full month on my “Calculated End Date.”

That is the date that is calculated to be when I will make my Grand Savings Plan, Savings Target. (As in put what my goal amount into savings.)

This number is totally irrelevant by now as the only date that matters is the one on the label below, “April 7, 2023.” 

That is the date that I will be stopping this Grand Savings Plan, as I will work though and put extra cash into savings until that date.

After which I will head on out and start to work the Homesteading Process. 

All that is but a dream as a thousand things can happen between now and then. All I can do is plan for the next 3 to 6 months but focus on today and this week.

So, I will continue to live simply and put as much as I can into my savings accounts.

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