$283.60 Saved to date not much but a start

June 14th, 2012 at 08:24 am

I'm very happy to report that I have stuck to my plan of saving 10% of what I earn each paycheck to day I transfered $141.80 to my savings account. This month has three pay days so I should have $425.40 saved on June 30th. My goal is to get at least $1,000 into an emergency fund so I can stay focused on my debt pay off. I'm learning from my mistakes as it seems that in the past the moment my car needed a repair I'd spend my bill money and fall behind. I'm so positive about this change and I feel like i'm headed in the right direction. I'm so glad that I stumbled upon this site you guys are such an inspiration.

    I think you are doing very well. When I started saving up for an emergency fund for the first time, I could only afford $10 a week. 10% of income seemed inconceivable. I think it's great you can manage this much. Keep up the good work.

    Congrats! Keep on keeping on. The key is to not use the savings that you have accrued, no matter what Smile. I made the mistake of getting a debit card for my savings account Frown...

    10% is a great target. Keep on going and don't get discouraged. Saving $1000 in 3 months is a very good clip.
