Financial Update – March

 Piggy bank by nikkinoguer. //  

Last month we Did Something Radical to give our savings a boost! 

This month is much less exciting. 

We’ve decided to put half of Hubs paycheck right into savings. 

We also received a very unexpected check from the Insurance Company.  Who knew you could over pay when you have auto payments for over 2 year!  The check came in the mail and went into the bank the next day! 

We knew we couldn’t give ourselves time to spend it or it would be gone!  The thought of some new clothes sounds nice, or new phones we’ve been talking about that and an unexpected check would cover all the cost involved, or what about each of us getting a little spending money?  New chairs for the back yard sure would be nice, what about a few dinners out?  That means less time in the kitchen for Mom ….oh the possibilities of instant gratification. 

The problem with all these possibilities, a month later we would have just about nothing to show!  All that “free money” would be gone and the excitement of whatever we managed to spend it on would have worn away. 

By putting the money quickly into savings we were able to keep it intact!  Not a dime of it spent. 

Add the “free money” and our savings from Hubs paycheck and we have blown past the 50% mark and hit 62%!!!  Wooo Hooo!  Did you hear that?  62% !  Wow I can’t belive it.  Sure 50% was exciting but blasting past 60% …    now.that.is.exciting! 

How are you doing with your Saving Goals?
