Saved Quarter Challenge: Savings Update. Nothing saved this week sadly from the budget. To many great deals at the grocery stores.
This week I was attempting to cut back by hiding a $20.00 in my wallet. If needed for groceries it is there but by having to dig it out makes me think.
I had forgotten to buy milk and had to break the $20.00 for that.
We did put $150.00 into the savings this week, giving us a a balance of $180. We signed up with a different bank for a checking account. With direct deposit after 3 months they would give us the $150.00 bonus. That came into the checking account this week.
$35.00 of that will come out of that to be put towards the income tax preparation program.
Balance in savings $145.00 for emergency fund.
Not much sold on eBay so nothing to add from that.
How did your week go with savings? Hope that it was better than mine.
I need to keep in front of me this thought .. cut back $20.00 a week, save it and after 52 weeks I will have over $1,000.
I am sharing this over at Saved Quarter Challenge
