The Homestead Fund Update

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!
