As of today, I’m going to make a slight tweak to my stats that I put at the top of each post.
Starting Debt (01.01.19): $124,310.77
Current Debt: $107,793.15
Total Paid Off: $16,517.62
Income Going to Savings: 1%
I’m going to add the amount I’m automatically deducting to put into savings.
Having read David Bach’s “Automatic Millionaire” for the second time, it really hit home the importance of putting something into savings.
Paying myself first.
So today I started very small. I’m putting 1% into my 401k. The stat I added will be the percentage of money I put into a combination of 401k, Roth, and Savings. The plan is to push this closer to 10% in total by the end of the year. Wish me luck!
I know, I know… 1% ain’t much. Gotta’ start somewhere!
