Okay, so it is that time again, when I update how my progress is going on my “Grand Savings Plan!” (to build my "Homestead Fund")
Okay, so let’s see how I did . . .
For review, here is how things looked from last payday . . .
That is 9.9% (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 10.7% of my savings target.
That means I put away 0.8% of my total Savings Target this payday.
Okay, so that may seem a bit depressing as it is less than a full percentage point, but this will be the norm moving forward.
This is because this target is larger than my previous one, yet I am clomping on ahead anyways until I fully fund The Homestead Fund (to 100%).
I have proved to myself that when I set a goal, I can hit it, so I will hit this goal (fiscal apocalypse notwithstanding).
The big moment this week is that I have hit the Milestone Goal of 10%! That’s right, I have crossed off the first row and so, I am now working on that second row!
I will keep going, as each time I move that percentage marker forward, I am moving myself closer to finally starting that homestead!
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
