Slow savings

April 18th, 2014 at 05:20 am

Saving has slowed down and I need to ramp it back up. I've been funneling more money towards other expenses, such as trips, Spring clothes, and holiday expenses. I need to get the extra spending under control so all of my savings actually stays in my savings account.

For Spring Break we visited family for 3 nights, and stayed in a hotel. That was an expense, but worth it. We really enjoyed coming back to the hotel to relax and use the pool. While visiting we did some shopping for the kids, since we had the time off and the kids were with us. Today we are back home, and I have no plans for the day. I will exercise later on, but that is about it. I want to pick up the house a bit and work on Easter baskets for the family.

I have the money for the rest of the month mapped out, and renewed determination to do better with keeping more in savings next month. I am pitifully far from reaching my financial goals for this year.

    Do you have a specific goal you are striving for or just more? I know I find a specific goal helps me. Although, it is tough in the spring when there are so many uses and needs for the money!
