Paying Myself

July 1st, 2015 at 07:40 am

Scfr's post the other day really hit home how bad my emergency fund is. I decided I should try and add more to it.

One of our deliveries came yesterday, this was all food for the pantry. I had used a discount code that I found on Facebook when ordering, but I didn't give it much thought. I checked my receipt and I saved 8.25. I've added it all to the emergency fund, breaking the norm of only adding 30%.

So, it now looks like this:

205.95 Beginning Balance
+_8.25 Delivery savings


214.20 New Balance

It's not much in the grand scheme of things, but I'm getting there.

    I agree that an emergency fund is super important, especially when one has little ones to take care of. You are doing great!

    I know you feel like you are crawling, but I have to say that every time I come on lately, it seems like you've jumped up a ton. You are really rocking it!

    Every dollar you have set aside helps - the more you have set aside, the less new debt you have to take on if something happens you can't cashflow.

    Great job, Sarah.

    That's a great idea, and much bigger than the weekly 2.00!

    I am just now getting comfortable with the pay myself first concept. Great idea banking the savings! That is something that I'd like to do - maybe starting in August or September (once the kids go back to school!)

    Smile Great job, anyhow!
