April 2017 Savings Update

In March I saved $1,000 towards our wedding. I realized that I’m actually attempting to cashflow TWO things – one is a wedding and the other is a trip to and from Nashville, where I’ll be spending the summer.

April Savings Goals
Starting: $1,250
Goal: $750
Actual save: $850 (113% of my monthly goal completed)
Total Saved since March: $2,150.04 (43% of my overall goal completed) (that .04 is massive amounts of interest being paid by my bank)

May is going to be hard. I’m only working two weeks in May… AND I need to spend some money at the dentist, and I need to make my car payment, and I need to travel to Nashville. As much as this sucks, I may need to pause my savings for the month in order to fund those things. I’m going to use the extra I paid this month to offset my goal for next month. Instead of a goal of $750 for May, I’m going to work. my. butt. off. to save $600 in addition to the aforementioned expenses.

Wish me luck… I literally have no idea how I’m going to do all of this!…any suggestions?!

    Good luck! Whenever I am trying to save extra money I try to cut expenses like groceries and gasoline!

    I was going to suggest what Bailey already said–are there any things that are “flexible” and could be cut?? Way to go on saving more than your goals!!! Sooo proud!

    Will you be working while in Nashville? Sorry if I missed it, but are you going for pleasure? How long will you be there? Do you have CC points? Maybe part of what you can do is *also* try to minimize the cost of that trip?

    you are doing awesome – it’s so cool when you are able to save more than your goal!! and don’t fret too much about May – it’s only one month & you have saved over your goal the last few months so you are ahead of the game!
