Blogoversary and Savings Update

April 10th, 2008 at 02:21 pm

Well, yesterday was my blogoversary. It's been two years since I started this blog here at SavingAdvice. I'm not going to write some epic about how coming to this community and starting this blog saved my life. Though I suppose it did. Financially anyway. But for any of you who have been reading me for awhile know, I already had my life saved and that's how I got into the financial hole in the first place. So throwing around phrases like "coming here saved my life" seems a bit anti-climactic after the three years of hospital hell, actual life-saving, and medical debt that brought me here, you know?

Still, that being said, being here helped me get my head on straight at a time when nothing else probably could have done. Yes, we're still in a lot of debt but its so much better than it was and so much better than it could be if I hadn't come here. So thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way. It means a lot.

I seem to be getting back into the groove, too. Both in posting more regularly and in getting my budget back into some semblance of order. That's always a good thing. Big Grin And I'm going to keep my eyes firmly focused on it. At least that's my goal.

Anyway, on to the savings update. Today was the day of the weekly deposit to the CU of $10, so I transferred that to ING. $300 here I come! Then $500, then $1000. It's good to be back in the savings game.

$267.41 beginning balance
$ 10.00 weekly deposit
$277.41 ending balance

    Interesting take on things. Given what you've experienced, I can't blame you for having mixed feelings about it....

    Well, I for one am glad that you are still here, and appear to be doing better. I haven't forgotten the fact you have been there for me, even when you yourself are going through things that are far worse than what I have experienced.

    So, happy belated Bloversary anyway, Robin. Smile
