Its been a while...

May 24th, 2007 at 12:27 pm

Long time no post, but I have been saving 1.00 a day since the new year getting automatically withdrawn from my checking to my ING savings. I am upto 175.39! Since the year is half over I am upping my weekly deposit to 9.32 a week. I chose that amount because thats how much I get paid an hour lol. So one hour a week is saved.

I have also started a 401k with my job. They match upto 5% of what I put in. Ive done it for 3 paychecks and I am upto 60$! I am only putting 2% in but I am upping it to 5%.

Edit: Just to let everyone know I am a 21 year old college student working part time.

    I think that is a great idea, saving at least one hour a week. I am jumping on the band wagon

    Congrats to you also for putting money in the 401K. Too many young people think they don't need to worry about it at their age and put it off til they are older. Trust me, you will be glad you did it while you were young and have the power of compound interest working in your favor.
