Well I had plans to work on updating my all budget spreadsheets and such this weekend but I got distracted but more pressing issues. That said, I did do my monthly spending update. I hit my target of 19% of gross income to date for retirement savings. However, I don’t know if I’ll be able to sustain that and/or hit my target of 20% for next month.
We’re in the middle of a home improvement project that is costing more than planned (35% over and we’re still not done). Our pickup may be having some mechanical issues. Hubby’s birthday is coming up and we’re having a party. I promised SavvyBro that I’d come visit him (requiring a plane ticket and hotel stay) this summer. And last but not least, there’s a fantabulous trip that I’d love to take next August. It would require a massive outlay of cash so I would need to start saving NOW. So much for my finances being on auto-pilot..
