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 47.8% (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 48.8% of my savings target.
That means I put away 1% of my total Savings Target this payday.
That is big and it was helped by both of my investments going up slightly, that and a bit of dividends are mixed in there as well.
The main thing is that my investments went up and I am inching closer to 50% of my goal.
It is always a big deal when I complete a row as it were, as in when I get to any percentage point ending in a “zero.” (10%, 20%, 30%, etc.) but getting to 50% is extra special.
I am just thankful to be able to put cash into my savings rather than have to pull cash out of it. So, any part of a percentage gain on that goal is a win in my books.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
