Summer is Busy – Don’t Stop Saving Money

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Filament.io 0 Flares ×

We will be the first to admit that Summer is busy. That means it is easy to overlook certain tasks on your weekly to do list (like saving money) because other things always seem to pop up that take you away from your normal routine. Right? We can’t be the only ones that are finding this to be true.

July and August weekends are booked nearly solid with events and art shows in our happy home. That means many Fridays we are on the road instead of at home in the office. As you may have noticed, we’ve been a little lax at reminding you to make the weekly deposits for the 52 Week Saving Challenge. Sorry!

Hopefully setting aside your weekly savings is a habit by now and you have continued to be disciplined with your money. Have you? If not don’t fret because it is simple to catch up and get back on track.

Savings reminders from previous weeks

Since we have not reminded you about the weekly deposit since July 14th (eeek!), here are the amounts you should have socked away.

Week 29 …… deposit $29 or $24 if you are working the backwards plan

Week 30 …… deposit $30 or $23 if you are working the backwards plan

And this week is week 31…..

Week 31 …… deposit $31 or $22 if you are working the backwards plan

Truth be told, we are playing catch up; this morning I put $69 into our savings account because we are working the backwards plan.

It feels so good to be back on track and up to date with the savings plan. This means the $1378 at the end of the year is a reality.

To refresh your memory, here are both deposit schedules (depending on if you are working the traditional plan or the backwards plan):
