Day 51: Emergancy Fund Created!!

I have crossed two things off my Finance TDL - Budget Complete & Emergency Fund of 1k created!!  I of course will continue to update and fine tune my budget. I am looking for ways to decrease some of the fixed budget items and will continue to work on decreasing variable budget line items (e.g. groceries).  My husband recently got a new position within his company that moves us from an income that is not regular (commission sales) to a salaried fixed income with the exception of bonuses. This will effect our budget a bit.

I opened a saving account and deposited $1,000 today in a bank separate from the bank I have my checking account. I do not want it to be easy to transfer or pull out money from the account. I want it used only for the purpose it was set up - for emergency use! It felt great to get that checked off my list today!

I watched Chalene Johnson's 30 Day Challenge video today. She is really getting into how she makes her TDL. She has a great system that will help me. One of the things I have had a tough time with is the non-priority TD's that don't get done on the day I schedule them. I really want everything crossed off my list I schedule.

Chalene's set up is to have a Daily To Do, Weekly To Do and Quarterly To Do. I think keeping a weekly to do list and crossing them off when I have time will work to help me feel successful and moving forward.

I am off to work on my 30 Day Challenge Assignment. If you have not signed up it is well worth the time.
