Savings Goals and Savings Challenge Update
My short term goal for my savings is to have one month of expenses in the quick-access account as an emergency- emergency fund, $3500 (I rounded up). Once this goal is met, I will move on to the next goal which is to have the rest of my emergency fund ($6500) in my Emigrant account making money for me. My total emergency fund goal is 10k. I need to get one of those cool goal-meters for my sidebar.
Savings Challenge: I added $65.80 to my $20 start, this was based on what my grocery receipts said I saved. Bfriend said if I wanted to be really accurate I should take the receipt from the Grocery Outlet and go online and actually compare it with Safeway to see if I really saved the $35 the receipt said I saved but for now I'm just going to go with what the receipt says. I've also decided to budget in $65/month for savings challenge so that I don't have to worry about not having money to set aside for the challenge. If I don't meet the $65 I'll put it in savings anyway just not as challenge money.
I think thats all for now.
