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 13.3% (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 14.4% of my savings target.
That means I put away 1.1% of my total Savings Target this payday.
Now, that was a great accomplishment but it is also one that will not likely prevail into the new year, as this is a large chunk of cash to put into savings.
I am still trying to put in as much as I can into savings as before the end of the year.
It is now out of a desire to build up my savings to a minimum level that I feel comfortable with, rather than reaching a predetermined arbitrary number (that I won’t reach).
I am still pondering what to do with regards to my savings.
As in, in what ways and in what savings and/or investment vehicles should I put my cash into in order to build my savings?
I will keep thinking on this and not make any decisions until the new year.
I am still focused on putting cash into the bank for now . . . as well as my Christmas Break.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
