April Savings & Interest

April 30th, 2017 at 05:13 pm

I honestly can hardly believe it is May! Is time flying for the rest of you too?

We saved some decent money in April despite going on a trip for eight days. Interest from our savings accounts and certificates amounted to $89.10. We are lucky to have quite a bit of cash in CDs paying 2% or more right now.

We saved $125 automatically from my husband paycheck. I recently increased this to $131, effective next month, since our dental premium went down.

We found some cash to save this month towards the Big Goal.
$105.06 Army Travel Reimbursement
$250.00 Army Damage Claim Paid
$100.00 Anniversary gift
$165.65 Ebay and Pinecone Proceeds
$50.97 Amazon purchases paid with Swagbucks

The total of all amounts listed above is $885.78. This is far from the $1900 monthly average I need to save each month to reach the big goal, but I'm keeping the faith that the tides will turn somewhere in the process where I can save much more each month. It is a journey. If we don't aim for something we will come up far shorter.

    You are so diligent with increasing the savings when you have a lesser expense! Keep aiming for high savings, even if you don't make it you will still be in a good place. Plus when you aim for things life has a funny way of making things available. (eg the first year I was saving the train ticket changed zones and went down from about $200 per month to $130!)

    I completely agree, VS! I know that if we aim for it things will fall into place along the way to make it close, at, or beyond our goal expectations. So exciting to think about it!!
