Let’s face it. I’ve the worst saver. Also this month was rough, since I went on a trip to Toronto, and I am finishing paying off my cruise for next month. I’m happy that next month will have less charges, but this month was probably not a great month to have a great start.
On that note, have you ever looked at your goal, realized it was a high bar. Really, you set yourself up for the highest of bars. I make a bit more that minimum wage. To get to $625,000, I have to save my entire income for 20 years. I can sell. I can minimize my spending. I can get a 2nd and a 3rd job, but that doesn’t change just what an overwhelming number that is. In reality, it is 2 to 3 times the value of any house I’ve lived in.
If I go off of what I spent in 2015, my goal number is $375,000. That number is not relieving in any way.
So yes, my goal is still in the hundreds of thousands, but I’m going to work on saving $10,000 by the new year. For those of you doing the math, that’s $2,500 a month.
Let’s start saving and making money!
See you soon!
