Big Savings Goal: $2,093.73

June 3rd, 2017 at 07:11 am

I'm not sure when I announced our Big Savings Goal, but it has been at least two months. I thought it would be good to share how far we have come.

The Big Savings Goal is $160,000.

We have saved $2,093.73 as of the end of May 2017.

I wish it was more, but I also am pleased that we have a decent start. I didn't put the goal out there to forget about it. I also expected progress to be a little slow in the beginning. We have a daughter in college, and some of our cash goes to tuition. We have a rent payment of $1800 for another year (hope to move and lower that amount).

I posted our interest for May in yesterday's post. Yes, that interest is going to our Big Savings Goal!

    @Thrift, it is actually two months, and a few months of interest since the beginning of January.

    Even for a couple months, I agree that's impressive!

    Impressive! Are you counting the money you already have from the house sale too, or just recent money?

  5. creditcardfree Says:

    @SG, This is recent money, but we do have $40K prior to add to this. The ultimate goal is $200K. My husband asked me the same thing when I mentioned the $2K saved. Smile
