Pagan savings challenge, week sixteen: other voices
Discovering what other people are saying about the Pagan savings challenge is a source of joy for me. Case in point: this PaganSpace.net discussion about different savings strategies.
The original poster says, "I'm not going about it the same way he did just because I don't think it would work for me to be putting more than $5 a week away into savings is practical for my low income family." I agree! The level of savings should be challenging, but not impossible. I'm glad e is adapting the challenge to fit eir own circumstances, because any savings is better than no savings, and developing a saving habit will serve you for life.
Some of the other wisdom shared is also sound, like capturing money saved by being frugal and using only cash. Anything to get the saving done is fine in my book, even lying. I use many tricks to stay on track (and I have stayed on track, despite the challenges I have documented; the original PaganSpace poster was left with the impression that I have not hit my goals each week, and I apologize if I have been unclear in that regard.)
My week sixteen savings: $136, 12% ($16) of which I added today.
