We just wrapped up week 31 of the 52 Week Money Challenge, and I'm happy to report I'm on track! Not only am I on track, but I'm actually way ahead of schedule. Unfortunately, that lovely green progress line shown in the picture below will soon dip back down to the red.
You may recall from one of my previous Money Challenge posts that I wasn't sure what I was saving up for. I thought about savings for a vacation or building up my emergency fund (I do have emergency savings in a separate account), but ultimately I decided I would start savings so that I could go back to school to pursue my Master's Degree.
And, that's exactly why that green progress bar isn't going to be green for long. I start my first class at the end of August, and I couldn't be more excited! Although it's going to be tough to see my balance dip down to zero, it feels awesome knowing that I'm able to pay for school without taking on more student loans.
Even though I may not have followed the plan exactly, I'm definitely glad that I had a constant reminder to put money into savings and am going to continue the challenge, starting right where I left off.
