loving the challenge

May 27th, 2007 at 12:45 pm

I like the idea of the $20 challenge, since starting I have been really saving and not touching these funds. I just added another $10 for not buying breakfast or lunch new total $2644.94(I made a mistake in an earlier post regarding my balance). At my age I am a shame to admit but I never had a savings with more than about $200 or so dollars, it feels really good
When ever I add even just a dollar I know I am closer to home ownership

    You know what Suze Orman says, "No shame, no blame." The point is to focus not on the past, but on what you are doing now and what you can do moving forward, and from where I sit it sounds like you are doing GREAT! Way to go!

    You know, you gave me the thought. I never put the money into savings when I don't spend it on lunch or a treat. I keep it in there and spend it on something else later. I need to learn to REMOVE it from my wallet and put it safely away!

    You're the one that inspired me to keep a finance blog here and I always feel a little bit excited when you write about achieving something financially.
    I've got even further to go than you, and each time i think about how I'll never make it and how I've got years to go, i remember when you wrote about paying off your last debts and how you were starting to save for a home. Now you're even further than 'starting' to save for a home, you're well and truly socking money aside for it. You'll get there eventually, I'm 100% sure of it!
