Savings for the week

So I posted earlier this week about my goal of getting an emergency fund/savings set up, and I just wanted to post a quick update.

My goal is $20 a week from my husbands pay and $20 every other week from my pay. Through a side project I did I got an extra $100 this week. I deposited that in my account and immediately transferred that plus another $25 (we had a little bit more to spare than just the $20). So I have completed 8.33% of my goal so far. YAY ME!

I was playing around with the numbers again this week and as long as I deposit at least $125 a month then I will meet my goal of $1500. So I am ahead of the game for this month already. YES!

Great job! We need to work on our savings too. Thus far, we have put every penny we have saved into Megan's account, but we also need to set some aside for emergencies, too. Thanks for the ideas!
