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 18.1% (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 18.8% of my savings target.
That means I put away 0.7% of my total Savings Target this payday. It was good progress, but still not enough to cross off a square.
I am still on target to get to 20% by the payday of March 22nd (a month from now). it feels like it is so long away, but it really isn’t.
Also, getting to 20% is a psychological barrier to me. It seems like it is the minimum that I need in the bank to not be totally screwed.
I will keep building my savings one payday at a time and keep looking to the successes that I have achieved rather than the things I have not accomplished.
I will get there, I have a ways to go, but as long as I keep making some progress each payday and keep focussed on my goal, I will get there: I will have land and a home (without wheels).
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
