300 more to go 3 weeks ago
Entries from everyone
Starting this goal off at $54, planning to save at least $200+/month 2 months ago
$650 in the Singapore jar
$350 in my bank account (also for Singapore)
Plus $$$ still to come from Mum before I leave- I DID IT!
When I return its straight back into saving mode since I will hopefully be travelling overseas again in January and need as much money as I can get. 4 months ago
I’m going to Singapore for school and my spending budget was going to be $600 so I started saving by emptying my wallet at the end of every day into a jar.
Well it’s been about 5-6 weeks and there’s $550 in the jar- next week I get a payment of $500, $400 of which is going into the jar (making $950) and I also get my birthday money, which will mean I will have saved $1000!
And although a lot of it will be spent in Singapore, now that I’ve done it once I can do it again :) 4 months ago
definitely worth it! I have a new sense of safety and security that I have this bit of emergency funds if I need it. NEW GOAL – save 7k. ugh …. 5 months ago
So obviously my goal is to hit $1000 at my next paycheck. Hopefully that paycheck won’t include the twelve hours of overtime that my last one did, because the last two weeks really sucked.
And I just let my boss know that I’m going to be moving and they told me to give two weeks when I know the date I’m leaving.
Naturally I plan to tell them I’m leaving earlier than I actually am because I really don’t like working there. I mean, I know a lot of people hate their jobs but since I’m quitting anyway it’s not that much of a lie. Plus, I want some time to hang out with my friends and pack my stuff before I go. 6 months ago
Goal 6/6: $700
Goal 6/20: $1000
I was at $500 (which was my previous goal) but I am super responsible and dropped nearly $100 on music supplies. Because, YOLO, or something?
It had to be done, so I’m moving on from my vague feeling of guilt. The goal dates are right after my paydays, with estimates about how much I could reasonably put away with each check. The 6/6 may actually be more, because I think I’m getting overtime pay. I’m kind of in denial about it, because seriously who needs teenagers working 40+ hours a week?
If I can stick with this job for another month, my reason for quitting will be “I’m moving to another state” which looks a lot better than “You guys are all crazy.” And then I’ll have some experience and hopefully be able to find a decent job after the move. 6 months ago
