Ok, after much thought, I’m going to count this as done. I may not be at $1000 right now, but I did hit it since I’ve been doing this goal. The reason I’m counting it as done instead of getting it back up is because I’m going to act on my reason for saving before I could possibly pull it off. I have to put a $1000 deposit at Duke’s of Malibu to reserve a wedding date. My fiance is paying half, so that’s $500 for my part. Basically, this would cut my savings down to where I couldn’t hit this goal again. I’m going to redo this goal soon, though. I’ll probably restart it in August, after I move, put the wedding deposit down, pay six months car insurance, and, well, that’s it. Then I save again.
I just deposited some cash that I had saved up. Hopefully, I’ll be depositing $400 more in the next month.
I had to take money out to pay rent, but I’ll be depositing around $100 soon.
I just put $280 into my savings account. $200 was from selling my old computer, $20 from mysurvey.com, and $60 from my fiance paying me back for buying her some clothes. That puts me up to $314.62. Plus, my mom’s sending me $30 for her part of our cell phone bill, plus I’ll be putting in money from my roommate’s part of the cable and my fiance’s part of our gym membership. I finally feel like I’m back on my feet with this goal.
I think I cn manage to put $400 into my savings account out of my next paycheck. That’ll put it back up to $500. Then when I get paid what I’m owed by a couple of people, it’ll be up to $800. Once I get it up to $1000, I’m going to aim for $2000. I have a lot to save for right now.
That’s the sound that my bank account makes. I’m going to be down to about $200 when I transfer some money into my checking account. Once some people pay me what they owe me, I’ll be up to over $500 again. Plus I paid my fiance back for what she lent me towards my down payment.
I sold my espresso machine to a coworker, and she paid me the first $35 for it, which I put straight into savings. I also realized that I missubtracted when balancing my checkbook, and I had $100 more than I thought left. I just paid $50 of it onto my Chase credit card bill, which I use to pay a couple of other bills in order to get the cash back rewards for bills I pay anyway. This way I should be able to get by next paycheck with paying rent, car payment, and cable without having to dip into savings. It’ll be a little tight, but I’ll get by.
There’s been a lot of ups and downs in this goal recently. I’m back up to the halfway mark, and I think I’ll be able to get by paying my car payment without having to take any back out. Hopefully I’ll be back up to $1000 within three months. I’ll still have to pay for car insurance in August, though, so I won’t count it as done until I have that taken care of.
I dropped down a lot. I bought a massager because I’ve been in constant pain, and it’s cheaper than going to a massage therapist. Anyway, I’ll get back there.
