54% Saved

July 26th, 2020 at 04:41 am

I completed my budget review tonight and found that for this last pay date I saved 54% of my income. Though most was to my sinking funds (future events) it was nice to know that I’m able to. Just wish I was investing this.

I also paid $300 on the student loans, next week I’ll pay about $500. I haven’t calculated but I’m anticipating that I’ve paid closer to $2000 this month on student loans, surpassing my goal of $1,000.

For the month, I saved almost $500 for my challenges. This will go towards my bed room set. I’d taken half the previous amount saved and threw it at the student loan, this was why I was able to go beyond my goal.

Yesterday was the first day I went out in months. Literally. I took a drive to a consignment store and they required a mask, and practiced social distancing. It was just nice to get out. I didn’t find a bed room set, but I did find the place to be expensive. It’s might be less expensive for me to buy a new set. I’ll keep saving and browsing around.

    Wow, that's great over 50%. You are amazing!

    Our local Salvation Army is absolutely shocking on the prices of furniture. Don't give up. You might want a dream bedroom set when you least expect it.

    That's awesome. You are so disciplined. You should be able to pay for plumbing repair with no problem.
