@roboticllama Congrats on the new house!
@Stina I always give myself a reward for no spend days -- like go out for drinks/eat once a week if I had 2 no spends days or if I brought lunch to work every day. Do the facial! It will make you feel better about your goal.
@Slapfight Awesome progress!
This month was actually great! Not like last month. I didn't post last month due to SHAME. But I recovered. Emergency fund (goal: $2000 by end of year) June 2014 $723 (went down due to car expenses) July 2014 $1034 [ON TRACK] Travel savings (goal: $1500 by end of August) June 2014 $200 July 2014 $816 [ON TRACK] COne credit card June 2014 $600+ July 2014 $0! Citi card June 2014 $500+ July 2014 $0! Thinking of starting a Roth in September and another e-fund for some upcoming lifestyle changes as well.
@pterodactylish For me, it does. I have several saving accounts for different things. Then I keep track of them on a spreadsheet. Also, especially for wedding stuff, SmartyPig is awesome for that.
@andnowlights This is awesome! Push through!
@Marissa Ah! I want to hear about your trip. It sounds amazing. Make a blog! Do you have one? I really want to spend some time in Vietnam and eat all of the soup.
Such a busy (expensive!) month. So much travel and eating out. Surprisingly, I stayed mostly on task. I did book some travel things for an upcoming trip but they are still pending on my credit card so I won't count them. Happy summer, guys! Also, yay Logan for checking in! Emergency Fund April 2014 $770 May 2014 $921 Travel Fund April 2014 $400 May 2014 $220 COne Card April 2014 $0 May 2014 $157 [+ pending transactions // should be paid off by next check-in]
@Chel Yay for paying those credit cards! Also, Panama is awesome (it's my motherland) and not very expensive. You should go!
@ThatJenn This is amazing! So inspiring. Go Jenn!
