Wish I could beef up this paltry number, but hey, it’s all Brad and I could muster up for March. With our big federal tax payment looming over us, we had to extract from this month’s saving which left us with a mere $21.89. We couldn’t bear to see a big fat zero, so we left this little bit to remind us that at least it’s money saved not spent. Obviously, not enough to have much impact on our debt this month.
We’ve run the gamut of emotions this past week—frustrated, disappointed, angry—but at the end of the day, we just have to accept it and move on. Next month, we’ll have to cycle through a couple of paychecks to set us back up in saving mode. First thing we need to do is replenish our emergency savings that we had to partially dip into for paying taxes. But it’s not all bad news, Brad’s freelance work is finally starting up again, which is already uplifting our money saving spirits. Our pace has slowed but not completely stalled.
