40% Of My Goal Reached

I am very happy to report my pay did eventually come through and I jumped on setting up the transaction right away. I now have saved $2000 towards my trip and have reached 40% of the total goal. I'm so excited!

This also brings my total savings for 2009 to $2300!! I've never had that much saved in my entire life and I'm very proud of myself. I have real self control now. I don't ever even think about touching that money. I'm a woman on a mission. A savings mission, lol!

I'm not doing as well for savings as I'd hoped to do by this time of the year but I can't be upset considering the great progress I've made. :)

Wow! This is really good news, Dolly! Gail Vaz-Oxlade would be proud... she'd send you on a romantic trip to a cabin in the woods and present you with a cheque for $5,000!

The fact that you've saved that much money in what seems like a short amount of time is truly remarkable.

How do you do it?

Congratulations!! When you're debt free, it's incredible how fast the savings accumulate, isn't it??

That's great! Good work. And even better work that you're not tempted to take that saved money and spend it on something else... it feels so good when you make such good progress, doesn't it?
