Savings Milestone #3 – Reality Bites

It got a bit tough on the savings front this fortnight. We managed to save $1000, which is $150 shy of our fortnightly target ($1150). The reason was mostly due to some unforseen medical expenses as our kids became sick. We also had additional expenses purchasing some warmer clothes as the weather is starting to drop as winter approaches. Our first frost is due on Thursday morning.


Overall, we are still saving quite well. Since we started just 6 weeks ago we have managed to save $3,300 towards our home loan deposit. There is still a long way to go though, but we are here for the long haul. Nothing will dent our enthusiasm.

  1. The good thing is that you are making progress and even though you had those unexpected expenses you were able to cover them without them turning into debt. Every month is different. Maybe after a down month you find yourself being extra hardccore the next month. We did that a lot. We had a similar goal of saving $60K in 2 years. After 1.5 years we had close to $48K and ended up purchasing a home with 10% down and have kept that extra money around in order to have cash on hand in case any issues came up. Good luck and keep up the great work!
