May $xxx Challenge check-in

Well, no one checked in at the mid-month check. I hope that those of you participating were able to save something???? How did you do w/the May $xxx Challenge??

I wanted to set aside $500. I did ok w/$400. I could have cashed in my coins to meet my goal. But, honestly, those are earmarked for something else so I chose not to. I'm going to continue to challenge myself to try to find some extra savings each month.

I did not do well with this at all. My plan was to replenish my emergency fund, at least some of it.

I waited until June 1st to come up with a plan. I finally took a paycheck and put it aside

We out the money back in our emergency fund and paid off the outstanding $100 bill... but we did not save for a freezer.
