Savings goal surpassed

April 16th, 2009 at 03:10 pm

I was able to put $525 toward our vacation savings, so I exceeded my April goal of $600 by saving $675.

Now some of it is going out almost immediately! We found some cute, affordable cottages in the two areas of Wisconsin we want to visit for our fall vacation, so I decided to book them now so we don't have to worry about the cheap ones being snapped up later on. We put 50% down payments down on a three-night cottage rental on Lake Kegonsa near Madison, and on a cottage in the town of Ephraim in Door County (a peninsula on Lake Michigan).

    Great news on your savings. Your vacation plans sound very nice... I think it is smart to secure the lodgings now. What you would have paid later can go into savings.
