Day 198 – so I’m a girl who never saved. I’m not much of a spender either. You see I’m on a very low income with two children. My kids always comes first.
A few months a ago I set up payments weekly for old bills to become again debt free. Slowly but surely my bills are being paid. My confidence with money growing.
Then I did the unimaginable thing. I opened a savings account. The goal was to save $200 in two months to bus somewhere stay at a backpackers for a few days child and man free. A mini holiday which I’ve not had for 13 years.
Chatting with my aunty she gave me a savings idea. At the end of each day check my accounts. Say I had 43.50 in there transfer $3.50. Any thing less the $5 straight to the savings and I’m proud to say I have reached $125.43 in 4 weeks.
I’m proud because I didn’t think it was possible, didn’t know I could do it. The fact I’ve not touched my savings. And me and my kids haven’t missed out on anything and don’t miss the money from my normal budget.
However now I face a mini dilemma lol do I continue on my holiday goal which I so desperately need. Or do I up my goal and really challenge myself to by the camera I’ve dreamt off?
Decisions decisions lol either way people I have savings yay
