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 16.4% (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 17.1% of my savings target. 

That means I put away 0.7% of my total Savings Target this payday.

The important thing to remember is that I did get to cross off a square. It is also important to note that any cash going into my savings is a victory.

I am doing okay and the warm weather is nice. On a side note, I was able to start my truck on Monday Evening, after work. 

All it took was for the truck’s battery to warm up enough to recover enough juice in it to turn the truck over. It started pretty much right away. 

I had arranged for a jump start but decided to try it anyways just in the hope that it would start on its own and it did. 

I let it run for 45 minutes before turning it off. I then started it again (to make sure that it would start). 

I ensured that the truck ran for at least ten minutes as I did my darting out for groceries and checking the mail (that I usually do on Friday Afternoons.

So, all is well, but in the future I will ensure that each time I run the truck (for the time being) that the truck is running for at least ten minutes (so as to keep the battery charged).

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