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 15.8% (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 16.4% of my savings target.
That means I put away 0.6% of my total Savings Target this payday.
Okay, so here goes, it is a new year and I am focussed on building my savings.
Since yesterday was payday that means that I processed my paycheque. This payday’s contribution could have been larger, but with the buying of the books put a dent in that.
What I mean is that some of the charges for the books didn’t hit the card until after the 22nd of December.
Since I can’t pay a bill someone doesn’t give me, those charges carried over to the payday of January 7th.
I am excited to build my possibilities by building my savings. Each dollar I put into the bank increases the possibility of what I can do in the future.
I know that a really cold snap is coming, but I also know that it will pass and that I know what to do, how to handle this cold snap. I am not worried.
This part of my life, the savings building part, will pass, and I will begin the Homesteading Phase soon enough (four or five years, but that time will come).
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
