I have a goal to saving an additional $4000 by the end of the year. That is $800.00 a pay check. I hope I can do this. Nope, I am going to do this. We need this cushion like yesterday.
I wish I had been more like Meg B. Her head was screwed on right from the get go. Me, not so much.
The hubster has over 30 years at his job and if a recession hits, he could be one of those folks who are asked to "retire". Just another reason I want to pay off the mortgage as early as possible. Even when meeting my $4000 savings goal I will also overpay the mortgage to get it paid off by the end of January 2017. That will free up a lot of money for us.
Once our savings account gets a better cushion-then I will attack the car payment again.
