    Default Saving for house challenge

    We have been TRYING to save for a house for over a year! Every time we save something happens and there goes our savings! Vicious cycle. I use to post here often, now I'm reduced to a lurker. LOL. I thought i would make this challenge for myself to help keep me accountable.
    So far in my house savings we have 168.00! Yikes! i would like to have enough saved by the end of Feb. 2011. Iam counting in tax return money at the end of Feb also, I know I can do this, i just need a little mre discipline and a backup plan for emergencies.
    Stay tuned....

    This is why most people advocate an emergency fund, and then saving towards a goal. At least you have an emergency fund, though. That's better than a lot of people.

    I'm here cheering you on as well. I'll probably be starting my own save-for-a-house accountability thread in the near future, too You can do it, just stay focused
