I’m back! Thanks to a swift kick in the butt from a reader (who did it as nicely as possible), I am back on track with this years challenge. Its a start!
I sat down today, paid some bills, caught up on some paper work and was able to transfer $153.00 into my kids savings account.
I still have this piece of paper to help me keep track though. It will actually be easier for me to transfer once a month into her account. It was kind of a PITA to get cash to put in the envelopes every week, seriously.
So I am back. I am on track.
I have not given up on the 2013 challenge. Call me stubborn. But I know that I can get caught back up with that if there are no unexpected expenses, I watch my Ps & Qs AND because I think I need to realize that I cannot afford to send my girl to golf tournaments EVERY month. I may have to do it every other month sometimes. That will help me out if I do.
If her dad steps up then it would be so great for her.
So there it is, I have an emergency/car fund going again.
Doesn’t it come in handy though? Last year I used it so many times! You gotta pay it back though. That is where I screwed up! 😉
How are you doing with yours?
